Professor Dale Glenwood Green, Assistant Professor at Morgan State University will be the guest speaker for that March 23rd Annual Meeting of the St. Michaels Museum. He will speak on “The Hill in Easton.”
Green, who specializes in architecture and historic preservation, was studying historic churches on the Eastern Shore when Easton resident Carlene Phoenix asked him to study the history of The Hill, a neighborhood in South East Easton which boarders E. Dover St., South, Harrison and Talbot Street to Easton's Rails to Trails. Extensive research indicates that The Hill may be the oldest free African American neighborhood in America. The title is currently held in the Treme neighborhood in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Come join us to hear more of this exciting and important story. The meeting is set from 2 to 4 p.m. at the St Michaels Library on Fremont St. It will also provide an overview of 2013 activities and a preview of what will be coming in 2014.
Light refreshments will be served. There will also be an election held for new officers. All are welcome. Bring a friend.
