“Heritage Days is the perfect opportunity for visitors and residents to explore a selection of Montgomery County’s historic sites that are not regularly open to the public,” Visit Montgomery President and CEO Kelly Groff explains.

Take a step back in time at the Seneca Schoolhouse Museum, a restored 1880s one-room schoolhouse or venture to the Woodend Nature Sanctuary to learn about the natural habitats that are located amidst our rapidly urbanizing region.

Visit Sandy Spring Museum for a lively Bluegrass Jam or tour the Josiah Henson Museum & Park to learn about the extraordinary life of Rev. Josiah Henson, formerly enslaved on the Riley plantation in Montgomery County.

With plenty more family-friendly sites and activities highlighting local history, culture and nature than those mentioned above, this weekend is a great chance for history buffs, art enthusiasts and anyone else to take some time to appreciate one of 13 heritage areas in the State of Maryland.

“Pack a picnic, load the kids in the car, and celebrate Heritage Days as you explore the fascinating sites that help make Montgomery County great,” Heritage Montgomery Executive Director Sarah Rogers said.
