Run for Rokeby (Anywhere!) 5K
May is National Preservation Month and we’re asking you to join us in running or walking a 5K in support of Rokeby Museum and the on-going preservation of this historic site.
No matter where you are in the country you can support the mission and preservation of this National Historic Landmark. Rokeby Museum is situated on 90 acres in rural Vermont. The Museum includes 8 historic buildings, a modern education center with exhibits, and thousands of letters and artifacts from the family.
The Museum is dedicated to sharing the story of four generations of the Robinson Family who lived on this site from 1796 to 1961, and their contributions to the abolition of slavery, the Underground Railroad, agriculture, art, and literature.
Please note: face mask usage and physical distancing is currently required at Rokeby Museum.
Additional Programs for Winter 2021 are being considered. Check back for announcements should we be able to offer them, or sign up to receive the museum’s e-news announcements.
