slave woman 1The historic Button Farm, home to the Menare Foundation, is Maryland’s only living history center depicting 19thcentury plantation life. Situated on 40-acres, inside of Seneca Creek State Park in Germantown, Maryland, Button Farm provides a safe and affirming space for people to gather, commune and explore. Through our unique interactive experiences, we seek to reveal our nation’s social justice legacy, using the story of slavery and the Underground Railroad as a spark for human potential.
