Join the folks from our local historical treasure, Josiah Henson Park, on Wednesday, January 10th at 7 pm at Luxmanor Elementary. Friends of White Flint and Montgomery Parks are holding a joint community meeting so you will have a chance to learn more about Josiah Henson, this facility, and their plans for the future.
Josiah Henson Park is the former plantation property where Reverend Josiah Henson was enslaved. This park is a historic resource of local, state, national and international significance because of its association with Reverend Henson, whose 1849 autobiography, The Life of Josiah Henson, Formerly a Slave, Now an Inhabitant of Canada inspired Harriet Beecher Stowe’s landmark novel, Uncle Tom’s Cabin.
Josiah Henson Park is located at 11420 Old Georgetown Road, North Bethesda
