Woodlawn Manor Cultural Park’s newest attraction is the Woodlawn Museum featuring multimedia exhibits throughout the 19th century stone barn.  Interactive exhibits highlight the area’s agricultural landscape, the Underground Railroad, local free black communities, and the Quaker experience in Montgomery County, revealed through the lives of the Woodlawn’s residents and enslaved laborers.

Travel back in time to learn how your family, friends, and neighbors may have lived. Imagine your surprise when you discover you haven’t traveled far from your backyard to your local park.
