From Rachel Davis Newhouse, the Montgomery County Parks Dept. Planner-Coordinator for the new Josiah Henson Park on Old Georgetown Rd. at Tilden Lane, comes a Henson Park Existing and Planned from last night’s public hearing on a new master plan for the park. The first is the existing land, showing the farmhouse where Henson worked as supervisor on the Riley plantation, and the old “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” log kitchen. The second is the “moderate” plan for the new park, turning the farmhouse into a museum and moving parking down to the adjacent properties. Note the screening trees not only around the park itself, but also in the median of Old Georgetown Road.
