Kingston Land Trust at the Persen House
On Saturday, June 29 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, meet & greet members from Kingston Land Trust who will share information about the newly acquired Pine Street African Burial Ground site.
More than 125 years ago, this burial ground was portioned off for private ownership when the borders of the City of Kingston expanded into the surrounding rural area. Now that the site has been acquired by the Kingston Land Trust, they are working with a partner organization and the community to restore the grounds and building as an interpretive center for education and reflection.
Admission is free and all are welcome!
