At the Benjamin Banneker Historical Park and Museum, you will find all sorts of history including the Colonial, Revolutionary, and Victorian eras. In addition to cultural history, the park is rich in natural history with streams, ponds, forests, and geological features.
In 1985, the land was rediscovered as Banneker’s farmstead. A non-profit, the Friends of Benjamin Banneker Historical Park and Museum, was founded and Baltimore County purchased the land with the goal to preserve it for the public. In 1998, a ribbon cutting ceremony was held for the newly built museum. In June 2018, the museum celebrated its twentieth anniversary.
