Details

Ben Lomond Historic Site is proud to present special guided tours in recognition of African-American History month. Visitors can explore the historic home and the original slave quarter to learn about the enslaved population living at Ben Lomond in the years before the Civil War. Visit spaces not ordinarily open to the public and participate in hands-on activities to learn about some of the chores that enslaved men, women, and children, were expected to complete and the lives of the enslaved community.
