Our Annual Fund Drive kicks off in November. Consider supporting Rokeby Museum in our mission to educating the public on the history of abolition, advocacy, art, and agriculture through the lives of the Robinson Family. Donate today.
After the success of our virtual book-sharing discussion group last month, we’ve decided to start a Winter Season Book Group. Join us each month, January–April for FREE virtual discussions about four powerful books. Registration in advance is required.
This stunning exhibit chronicles the stories of Simon and Jesse, two fugitives from slavery who found shelter at Rokeby in the 1830s. Free & Safe traces their stories from slavery to freedom, introduces the abolitionist Robinsons who called Rokeby home, and explores the turbulent decades leading up to the Civil War.
The house tour is an intimate experience, during which visitors encounter the stories of all four generations of the Robinsons on their own terms — and in their own spaces. Due to COVID-19, house tours are not available at this time, but check back. An alternative experience may be available soon.
