Webinar: Historic House Call: Religion and Historic House Interpretation

August 16, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

| $40

While introducing the topic of religion into regular museum tours can be tricky, there are some site histories that require some mention in order to fully understand the influence that faith had on that specific family or event. One such museum that deals with the issue of religion for that reason is Surratt House Museum in Clinton, Maryland, a historic property of The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission.

During this webinar, Susan Proctor, education coordinator at Surratt House, will discuss the elements of religion that have been incorporated into the history of Mary Surratt and the museum. A member of the AASLH Religious History Affinity Group will serve as moderator for this session.
