Christmas on the Ridgelys' Plantation

Saturday, December 8, 2012 at 2:00 p.m.

Park Ranger Angela Roberts-Burton will be dressed in period attire at the Lower House as she gives a glimpse of what the yuletide season meant to enslaved African Americans on the Ridgelys' estate.

The Christmas holiday brought some relief as well as grief to those who toiled their lives away on the Hampton plantation. Come and hear some of their stories.

Bring the entire family to hear this forgotten time in history.

Admission is free but space is limited. Call 410-823-1309 x251 for more information.
