Our speaker, Dr. Lisa Kraus, will speak on the Serenity Farm African American Burial Site in Charles County Maryland, which was discovered by archaeologists from the Maryland State Highway Administration in 2011. Come and hear the story of how a lost cemetery was rediscovered and reestablished so that the descendants may now visit the graves of their ancestors.
The business meeting of the Archaeological Society of Maryland starts at 7:00 p.m. and the talk begins at 7:30 p.m.
This past weekend, the Friends of St. Vincent’s Cemetery held a successful spring clean up day in Clifton Park with support from a great group of volunteers. Thanks to Stephanie Town for sharing a few photos from the event!
Special thanks to AOH-3 Towson, Friendly Sons of St. Patrick, Police Emerald Society, and Maryland Irish Charities for their hard work. Thank you Terry Nolan for bringing and operating the bush hog and Ed Crawford and Tom Kelleher for recruiting and advocating for this project.
