Dedication Ceremony: Memorial to the Enslaved of the Joel Lane Plantation, 1769-1800
On Sunday, February 16, 2020, 2:00pm, we will gather in the Joel Lane Museum House gardens for a time of contemplation and remembrance, as we dedicate a memorial to the people who were held in slavery by Joel Lane and his family. At least forty-three men, women, and children are known to have been enslaved on this plantation. This memorial will serve as a permanent testament to this community, who lived and labored here in bondage, and their essential place in our history. Please join us as we honor them.

Light refreshments will be served following the ceremony.
