The Montgomery County Planning Board will hold a public hearing on plans for the new Josiah Henson Park in White Flint this Thursday, Oct. 28, at 7PM. The park, along Old Georgetown Road by Tilden Lane, is one of the few historical sites preserved in Montgomery County.

The park celebrates the life of Josiah Henson, a wonderfully talented writer and orator, born into slavery, whose early life was captured by Harriet Beecher Stowe’s novel “Uncle Tom’s Cabin.” The park also chronicles the life of African-Americans in early Montgomery County.
