Slave Cabin Dedication Weekend
ALL EVENTS ARE FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
Historic Sotterley Plantation is both humbled and elated to celebrate the official opening of its Slave Cabin Exhibit! The new exhibit is being dedicated to the memory of Agnes Kane Callum, a Sotterley Trustee Emeritus, who passed away in 2015. Ms. Callum spent her life tirelessly researching her own family's history that intertwined with Sotterley, and composed many other written works which shed light on the life and labor of Maryland's people.
Such a momentous occasion necessitates four straight days of educational programs and community outreach.
