Dedication Ceremony: Memorial to the Enslaved of the Joel Lane Plantation, 1769-1800
On Sunday, February 16, 2020, we will gather in the Joel Lane Museum House gardens for a time of contemplation and remembrance, as we dedicate a memorial to the people who were held in slavery by Joel Lane and his family. At least forty-three men, women, and children are known to have been enslaved on this plantation. This memorial will serve as a permanent testament to this community, who lived and labored here in bondage, and their essential place in our history. Please join us as we honor them.
