“I give to Rokeby because it provides visitors with the kind of people-centered history that makes critical shifts in the American experiment, such as the abolitionist era, come alive. The knowledge it so memorably embodies gives us the tools to know history better, so we are less likely to be doomed to repeat it.”— Kate Schubart, Rokeby Museum Trustee
Rokeby Museum’s staff, Board of Trustees, and volunteers thank you for your support and for keeping Rokeby’s history alive and relevant for future generations!
Your donation makes Rokeby’s work possible. Thank you!
