We Honor The Ancestors
Saturday, June 18th
1:00 to 4:30 pm
Juneteenth is the commemoration of the emancipation of enslaved African Americans in the United States, Join us for a Juneteenth event as we honor the ancestors in peaceful and reflective tribute.
Our gardens and grounds will be open from 1:00 to 4:30. The basement kitchen of the 1815 Rosedale house will showcase the latest exhibits from our African American Legacy project. This project is a descendant based expansion of our knowledge and interpretation of the enslaved and freed African Americans who lived and worked at Rosedale. The blacksmith shop will be open and the forge fired up.  At 2:00 (in the basement kitchen) we will begin a program of music, prayer and poetry reading that will last approximately 30 minutes. 
This is a FREE community event. 
Event is rain or shine.
