Friends House is sponsoring an historic bus tour, starting from the Sandy Spring Friends Meeting House at 17715 Meeting House Rd, Sandy Spring, MD 20860 and including stops at:
- Woodlawn Manor Historical Park
- Sandy Spring Slave Museum
- Sandy Spring Museum
Lorne Garrettson will be the tour guide, with additional tour guides at each of the stops. People will gain knowledge of the settlement and history of the town of Sandy Spring; some of the interesting facts about the Quaker Meeting House and community, the neighboring Lyceum and the graveyard; and the history of slave-holding and some of the activities of the freed slaves.
The tour will be offered three different times. Each tour will last about 3 hours and will start and end at the Meetinghouse.
Participants will leave with interesting facts about the three locations, a better understanding of the history of the area, and hopefully a desire to go back to each location and learn more!
Tickets are $40 apiece please click below on the tour time you are interested in.
Two seats accessible for wheelchairs are available for each tour.
