View our latest “story project” video, below, featuring Sharyn Martin. Sharyn is a docent and member of the Deale Area Historical Society. When she discovered the African-American Meeting House (1895) at the Herrington Harbour North Historic Village, it became especially close to her because of the significance of that building in the African-American community in the Deale area. This is Sharyn’s story of the special place this building has in our history and the heritage that is still relevant today.
Through the Four Rivers Heritage: Story Project, we tell the powerful stories of the volunteers who work at our heritage sites, discover how and why they do what they do, with the understanding that our history and heritage are critical to understanding our future.
