Emancipation Day at Button Farm

Visit Button Farm on Sat. Oct. 31 to celebrate the day in 1864 when Maryland changed its constitution to abolish slavery, six months before the end of the Civil War. This outdoor, open-air event includes an emancipation-themed, self-guided tour of the farm and slave cemetery accessible on your phone through our QR portal. Scavenger hunts, farm animals, “safe” hands-on history, and musical acts will help to round out the day. Fresh air, masks, and social distancing protocols will be in place.

Saturday, October 31 from 12noon to 3pm.
