Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Monday, January 20, 2014 - 9:30am to 4:00pm

Learn more about New England's civil rights legacy as our costumed historians portray important 19th-century abolitionist leaders. Tammy Denease Richardson will portray Elizabeth “Mum Bett” Freeman and share the story of how this one-time slave won her freedom in court in 1781. Costumed interpreters will also portray Abby Kelley, a 19th-century abolitionist and women’s rights activist, and William Lloyd Garrison, one of the founders of the American Anti-Slavery Society.

OSV is offering free admission for children (ages 17 and under) on weekends, including Martin Luther King Jr. Day, January 11 through March 30, when accompanied by one adult paying full-priced, regular admission.
