On June 29, 10:00am-8:30pm, enjoy the sights, sounds and music of the 19th Century—including concerts and family activities by Washington Revels vocal ensembles, musicians and actors. This free event (the centerpiece of Heritage Montgomery’s 16th annual Heritage Days Weekend) includes concerts, crafts and demonstrations, and appearances by historical figures (including President Abraham Lincoln!). Have fun learning about life in Rockville during the war; take an Underground Railroad walking tour; delight in children’s activities and a family sing; and kick up your heels at a community country dance featuring the Roustabout String Band at evening’s end!
