Description

The approximately 4-acre park is located at 11420 Old Georgetown Road in the Luxmanor community of North Bethesda. The purpose of the project is to rehabilitate the existing Josiah Henson Park and create a heritage tourism destination. The project includes converting the historic Riley/Bolten House to a public museum; constructing a new 2,900 square foot visitor center with bus-drop off area and four-car parking lot on the former Rozier property; and new landscape sitework and outdoor interpretation that will make the park more accessible for visitors and convey its former appearance as a plantation.
