One June 16th the AAHAWMD sponsored a walking tour of Jonathan Street and it’s rich history. About 20 people followed along as Lynn Bowman led the tour that ended up at the Robert Johnson Center for a Q&A session with refeshments.
Wonderful walking tour of the Jonathan Street area in Hagerstown this afternoon, led by Lynn Bowman. The photo shows the home of Jacob Wheaton, the first African American to vote in the state of Maryland. The woman standing in front is a descendant both of Nathan Williams, who owned Fort Frederick, and of the Moxley family, of Moxley’s Band fame. So much rich history! – Dr. Emilie Amt
