THE BUTTON FARM LIVING HISTORY CENTER
where present meets past, and past meets future
The historic Button Farm, home to the Menare Foundation, is Maryland’s only living history center depicting 19th century slave plantation life and the heroic story of the Underground Railroad through our unique living history experiences.
Situated on 40-acres inside of Seneca Creek State Park in Germantown, MD, we operate under a long-term lease with the State of Maryland Department of Natural Resources through the State Resident-Curatorship Program.
Menare will restore and maintain the historic buildings and preserve the cultural landscape as a resource for education, preservation and heritage. For more information on The Menare Foundation please visit us at www.menare.org.
