    Located in Baltimore County, Maryland, Epsom Farm produced cereal crops, hay, fruits, dairy products and livestock with a labor force including free and enslaved men and women. Henry Banning Chew (1800-1866) and his first wife Harriet Ridgely Chew (1802-1835) gained ownership of Epsom Farm and 19 enslaved people in 1829 after the death of Harriet’s father, Charles Carnan Ridgely (1760-1829). The Chews owned the property until 1921, when it was then sold to Goucher College.

    On Sunday, June 2nd, Tina Sheller, Assistant Professor of History at Goucher College, and two alumnae—Hannah Lane and Sophia Lipman—will present research on Epsom Farm and the free and enslaved workers who toiled on the property. In addition to the presentation, view a new exhibition based about the African American’s at Epsom Farm with artifacts found on Goucher’s campus. Tickets are $8 and on sale now.

    Cliveden’s award-winning dramatic event returns for a limited time!

    June 12th-June 14th at 7 PM | June 15th at 12 PM & 3 PM for Historic Germantown’s Juneteenth Celebration

    Liberty to Go to See features the lives of the indentured and enslaved workers for the Chew family from the 1760s through the 1860s—men and women whose stories are rarely heard. The title comes from a letter from Joseph, an enslaved worker, to his master, Benjamin Chew, requesting permission to accept employment closer to his wife. The play contrasts the ideals of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness by showing the paradoxes of racial discrimination, class divisions, gender roles, and the struggle for freedom.

    Tickets are $15 and on sale now through the link above. Space is limited, advanced purchase is required. The play is not recommended for children under 12 years of age.

    Liberty to Go to See is funded by The Haley Foundation.
