Please join us at the upcoming meeting when we welcome Jamie Kuhns, our featured speaker. We are all fortunate to live in Montgomery County where we never have to travel far from our own backyard to a local park. Jamie Kuhns holds the position of Senior Historian in the Cultural Resources Stewardship Section for Montgomery Parks. It is her job to produce the research necessary to design the Parks’ museums and to develop interpretive tours.
Most recently, Ms. Kuhns worked on developing the Woodlawn Museum in Sandy Spring, which highlights the area’s agricultural landscape, the Underground Rail Road, local free black communities and the Quaker experience in Montgomery County. She is currently the cultural resources project manager for the new Josiah Henson Museum scheduled to open next year and the author of the just published, deeply researched biography of Reverend Henson, whose 1849 autobiography inspired Harriet Beecher Stowe’s landmark novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Ms. Kuhns has worked in various capacities at several museums and archives in Delaware and Virginia before coming to Montgomery Parks. She holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in history, from Radford and James Madison Universities, respectively, and is currently completing a doctoral degree in the history of American civilization.
The Election of SFCCA Officers will also take place at this meeting. Members will nominate and elect the next President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary to serve our community. Join us and vote!
