African American History in Allegany County

February 18, 2017

The Gordon Roberts House

As a laundress, nurse & mother in the late 1800s, Jane Gates defied the norm. Professor and author, Lynn Bowman, will bring us "African American history in Allegany County: It's Not Just Black and White" where she will discuss African roots in Allegany County and touch on servants, and domestics just like Jane Gates.

The Gordon-Roberts House will be open for you to explore the original 1867 servants' quarters before and after the presentation. Admission to the event and museum is free. Donations are welcome and will go toward local community heritage projects. Light refreshments will be available.
