Join us July 10–21 for a two-week, immersive experience in theater, history and nature! Campers will lose themselves in another time as they revel, learn, and build their own original play, based on the historical themes of Rokeby’s history. The weeklong day-camp culminates with a performance on Friday for families & guests.
We are very excited to bring back our Winter Book Discussion group. Join us each month, January–March of 2023 for FREE virtual discussions about three powerful books. Register today for one or all of our discussions led by Rokeby staff.
Our 2022 season has come to an end and we’d like to thank all who visited us this past season, enjoying our exhibits, programs, and events. We look forward to welcoming you all back in mid-May when we re-open. Check back frequently or sign-up for announcements of programs and events we will be planning in the off-season.
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 historic home 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. Guided tours of the historic home and outbuildings are available Friday–Monday, with tours at 11 am and 2 pm. Tours last approximately one hour.
