AARCH Society Mission

The Mission and Goals of AARCH (The African American Resources - Cultural and Heritage Society, Inc.)

Mission:
To identify, collect, preserve, exhibit, and disseminate the history and culture of African Americans in Frederick County to provide an understanding of how the past shapes and enriches the present and the future for all citizens.


About AARCH:
The AARCH project was formed in 2001 in an effort to preserve and make accessible the African American history and culture of Frederick County, Maryland. This project was an initiative of the Frederick Historic Sites Consortium of the Tourism Council of Frederick County with preliminary funding from Maryland's Historical and Cultural Museum Assistance Program and The Community Foundation of Frederick. The self-guided African American Heritage Walking Tour Guide of Frederick was produced from this first initiative. Following this project, an independent AARCH organization was spearheaded by the late William 0. Lee, in an effort to establish a Frederick County African American Museum.

To continue his vision, the AARCH Society of Frederick County, Maryland has been formed with a mission to identify, collect, preserve, exhibit, and disseminate the history and culture of African Americans in Frederick County to provide an understanding of how the past shapes and enriches the present and the future for all citizens.

Currently, AARCH general meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month at Asbury United Methodist Church, located on West All Saints and Court Streets in Frederick, MD, at 11:00 am. All persons who share this vision are asked to join the Society and attend a meeting.
