Cemetery Discovery at Serenity Farms  (SMCGS Monthly Meetings)
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Southern Maryland Higher Education Center, California MD
Franklin Robinson, Jr, one of the owners of Serenity Farm near Benedict, Maryland, will narrate how a skull found in 1982 on Serenity Farm led to the discovery of a previously unknown slave burial ground. In 2012 the State Highway Administration started investigating the site and identified 23 African American burials dating from 1780 to 1810. Franklin will relate how archeologists, physical anthropologists, historical research, and interaction with the African American community helped to understand more about the individuals (9 adults, 6 children and 8 infants) buried here. Mr. Robinson is an archivist at the Smithsonian Institution and a member of the Charles County Historic Preservation Commission.
