Proudly became a member of this wonderful museum and educational institute.
Working on getting interest for a project for archeological research and mapping (ground-piercing radar, et al) of the homesteads of the historical Howard Chapel and to have a stone wall encasement around our family cemetery. Looking for participants and informations as our former family grounds are nowadays as we know, a Maryland State Park. Etna Woolridge Ilka Knüppel Quinton Sharp Mary Howard Nellie Howard
While riding from Columbia to Rockville on back roads, was pleasantly surprised by a sign for the "Slave Museum." More impressed by the conversation with the volunteer who's family hails from Sandy Spring. A taste of black history in a small community.
I am very proud of Sandy Spring, I grew up there and the history that the black people have preserved is remarkable. And I say this without even having the opportunity to visit the museum, just viewing what is posted on their web site is Awesome. I will plan a trip to Sandy spring just to see the museum and the home that I grew up in, Bloomfield.
