“Witnesses of Wallville”

This is a recording of the first Wallville Community Meeting held at the Prince Frederick Library on Monday, January 30th at 11am.

Jefferson Patterson Park and Museum (JPPM), with the help of funding through the National Park Service Civil Rights grant program, are looking for citizens to participate in sharing their knowledge of the Wallville community. Wallville, a small and once predominantly Black rural community in southern Calvert County near St. Leonard, has undergone many changes throughout the 19th and 20th centuries and into the present.

The “Witnesses of Wallville” project is being supported in part by an African American Civil Rights grant from the Historic Preservation Fund administered by the National Park Service, Department of Interior. The National Park Service’s African American Civil Rights Grant Program funding helps preserve sites and history related to the African American struggle for equality.
