The Benjamin Banneker Historical Park and Museum has become the premier destination for families living in the Baltimore and Washington metropolitan areas looking to engage with history and nature.  With each new installation, the Park and Museum continues to reach out to new audiences helping others to learn, grow and use their imaginations.  View some of the Benjamin Banneker Foundation's anticipated projects below then click on DONATE so you too can help others BE INSPIRED.





Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Retrace the footsteps of Benjamin Banneker and let local 18th-century re-enactors and craftsmen keep family members of all ages entertained. For more information or if you would like to participate as a re-enactor, craftsman, musician, volunteer, or food vendor, visit


We are working with the Catonsville Library to promote literacy, exercise, and outdoor fun.  Each page from a seasonally selected storybook will be installed every few feet along a trail for visitors to enjoy reading while spending time outdoors. 


We would like to place a placard in front the Banneker cabin so visitors may learn about the structure and its contents during the museum's closing hours.  


Did you know Banneker was a tobacco farmer?  With a tobacco shed visitors can learn the vital role tobacco played in shaping Maryland's economy during the colonial era as well as participate in tobacco farming from start to finish.
