Description

Experience Maryland as it looked in the early 1800s by visiting Woodlawn Manor Cultural Park, where historic buildings transport you back in time to the founding of the Sandy Spring Quaker settlement and a historically free black community. Visit the new Woodlawn Visitor Center, a stone barn full of interactive exhibits that tell the story of a bustling farm and the earliest residents of the Woodlawn community. See a Federal-era manor house, used today as an event center, and six historic original outbuildings. Walk the Underground Railroad Experience Trail and imagine what it was like to be a freedom seeker. The trail is open year-round for self-guided hikes or come visit April through October when conductors showcase the stories and strategies used and the hardships faced on the road to freedom.
