AARCH is making plans to open an African American Heritage Center in Frederick County. In addition to serving as the AARCH home, the Heritage Center will house our collection of exhibits and artifacts, which convey some of the history of daily life for African Americans in Frederick County. The Heritage Center will also serve as a place for family and scholarly research; it will be a safe space for learning about and openly discussing issues related to African American culture, history and experiences in Frederick County.
Plans for the Heritage Center are in the early stages, and AARCH welcomes volunteers to help us move forward. To share your ideas and talents, please contact AARCH.
