Join us on Saturday or Sunday to celebrate two historic birthdays!  

On Sunday, February 11, wish Frederick Douglass a very happy 200th birthday! Gather around Mr. Douglass, portrayed by Living Historian Michael Crutcher, to learn about his lifelong fight for equality, ask him about his role in abolishing slavery, and get a good look at his 19th-century suit and tie!

Douglass’s acquaintance, President Lincoln, was also born in February! Visit the Museum on Saturday, February 10, to meet Abraham Lincoln.
