Walking Tour of Frederick Douglass in Denton
October 20, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 pm
Following the successful presentation of “Lost History: Frederick Douglass in Caroline County” this past February at the Denton Library local historian John Muller returns to town to offer a unique walking tour for students and seniors alike interested in learning more.
Join local history enthusiasts and community leaders for a debut walking tour detailing a previously unknown high-profile visit Dr. Douglass made to Denton, Maryland in the fall of 1883. Arriving by train and escorted through town by a brass band from nearby Centreville, Douglass spoke at the old county courthouse in a political rally before departing by boat.
Learn more about the many connections Douglass had to Denton and Caroline County from his childhood and through his wife and close friends from Caroline County.
Tour will begin at the Wharves of Choptank Visitor and Heritage Center and conclude outside of Union Bethel AME Church in Historic Old Denton.
Total walking is under two miles. If inclement weather, tour will be re-scheduled.
