The Park and Museum honors Benjamin Banneker — scientist, astronomer, mathematician, abolitionist, surveyor, farmer, almanac publisher– on the site of his former farmstead. We offer a diverse array of educational exhibits and environmental programs as well as trails, and horticultural demonstration areas.

The Friends of Benjamin Banneker Historical Park & Museum is a 501(c)3 nonprofit volunteer organization organized to promote and develop the park and museum in cooperation with the Baltimore County Dept. of Recreation and Parks.
