On February 18th Lindsay Varner, Executive Director for Chamber member Rokeby Museum, will join us to provide a virtual tour of Rokeby and update us on their plans for the future.
From 1793 to 1961, Rokeby was home to four generations of Robinsons — a remarkable family of Quakers, farmers, abolitionists, artists, and authors. Today, the Robinson family’s home is a National Historic Landmark, designated for its exceptional Underground Railroad history. Rokeby is among the best-documented Underground Railroad sites in the county, one the National Park Service has described as “unrivaled among known sites for its historical integrity and the poignancy of the stories it tells.”
As always, enjoy casual conversation, member announcements, and have the chance to win a door prize or our Pot of Gold drawing.
