Hollywood, MD - 3/15/2012
Sotterley Plantation is pleased to announce the presenters for the 2012 Speaker Series at Sotterley. An important community outreach, this series is yet another way that this National Historic Landmark fulfills its mission of serving as an educational resource and cultural venue while it seeks to preserve, research, and interpret the plantation’s diverse cultures and environments throughout history.
Because of the ongoing generosity of The Boeing Company, dedicated to promoting education and the arts within the Southern Maryland community, the Speaker Series at Sotterley is free to the public. Due to limited seating, advanced reservations are required. Call 301-373-2280 for reservations.
