Tour and Lunch

 Sotterley Plantation

 

As a follow-up to the Les Dames d'Escoffier tour of the National Museum of African American History and Culture, what could have a stronger impact than a tidewater plantation tour? We tend to think of Maryland as a Mid Atlantic state, but it is actually south of the Mason Dixon Line and bears the shameful history of slave labor that reverberates in social relationships to this day.

The Sotterley Plantation, founded in 1699, is a testament to all those that lived, labored, and resisted here. It is older than Mount Vernon,

At 10 a.m. on May 15th, visitors will meet at the Sotterley Plantation, about an hour's drive south of Washington, D.C. A docent will talk with our group about slavery, resistance and freedom as we tour the house and gardens, including behind-the-scenes areas upstairs and in the kitchen that are not included in most tours.

We will have a lunch, including samples of two variations of Southern Maryland stuffed ham and a choice of sandwiches, salads, dessert and beverages on the portico.  After lunch, everyone is free to meander the grounds on their own.

The plantation has limited access for people with disabilities and cannot accommodate wheelchairs. Please wear walking shoes.  Ticket cost includes tour and luncheon.  No refunds after May 2, 2018. L
