Josiah Henson Black History Month imageJosiah Henson Park

11420 Old Georgetown Road, North Bethesda, MD 20852 |
Josiah Henson Park is located on the historic Isaac Riley Farm in North Bethesda where the Reverend Josiah Henson lived and worked as a slave from 1795 to 1830. This park is a historic resource of local, state, national and international significance because of its association with Reverend Henson, whose 1849 autobiography, The Life of Josiah Henson, Formerly a Slave, inspired Harriet Beecher Stowe's landmark novel, Uncle Tom's Cabin.


The 2015 Schedule will be posted well in advance of this event.

Parking for Josiah Henson Park events is available ONLY at the Kennedy Shriver Aquatic Center, 5900 Executive Blvd., North Bethesda.
