Help Bring History to Life

Your help is needed today to bring history to life.

Sharing stories of the past and revisiting these moments are critical ways for us to learn and develop a deeper understanding of who we are, how we live today, and the choices we will make for our future. Every week at the National Colonial Farm, interpreters bring these stories to life, creating lasting memories for visitors. Each visitor experience is as unique as the stories told.

Your gift is critically important because it allows us to:

  • Expand projects that have limited funding by including more partners, scholars, and research to reach more people in interpretive programs that facilitate dialogue and raise important questions about history.
  • Provide training and professional development to interpretive professionals, enabling them to gain invaluable skills, knowledge, and tools to create an authentic visitor experience at the National Colonial Farm.
  • Outfit more interpreters with period appropriate clothing vital to the creation of deeper connections with tens of thousands of visitors.
  • Purchase essential interpretive materials and supplies for a real working farm, creating an experience that goes beyond museum walls and protected artifacts to bring a deeper understanding of our historical roots.

Your support will make all of the difference in the impact of interpretive programs at the National Colonial Farm.

Please help us to share Maryland’s history and continue this important work by making a tax-deductible gift today.
