On Sunday, we will visit the Benjamin Banneker Museum in Oella/Catonsville. The museum is a 142-acre site dedicated to telling the inspiring story of Benjamin Banneker, often considered the first African-American man of science. He was a largely self-taught mathematician, astronomer, almanac writer, surveyor, abolition advocate and naturalist during the late 1700s.
The museum and some of the outdoor paths are fully accessible; the interior of the split log cabin is not accessible.
There is no charge for visiting and there is ample parking. If we desire, we can ask the staff at the museum to give us an impromptu tour when we arrive.
For an online option for those not going to the museum, we recommend:
