Drayden African American Schoolhouse Hosts Open House

Did you know that one of the nation’s best-preserved one-room African American schoolhouses is right here in Southern Maryland?

The Drayden African American Schoolhouse will host an open house on Saturday, June 1, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The schoolhouse is located at 18287 Cherryfield Road in Drayden.

During the open house, you can check out the renovated schoolhouse and learn about its rich history and importance in St. Mary’s County. Staff will be available at the school during this time to answer any questions and provide information.

The schoolhouse has been closed for several years, but with the completion of the renovations of the building in the spring of 2018, the
public is now able to access this significant historic site on the first
Saturday of each month and during periodic special event weekends. The Museum Division also offers special programs for school, bus, and other tour groups who would like to visit the site. Visitors who would like to see the schoolhouse outside open house hours can contact Piney Point to arrange a visit.

The open house is co-hosted by UCAC—Unified Committee for Afro-American Contributions and the St. Mary’s County Museum Division.
