OBEN 1st to Take 'Stand Where They Stood' Tour
Standing on paper footprints, 5th graders from James H. Vernon School read aloud: “I am Priscilla, and I was purchased in 1796 by Solomon Townsend for 55 pounds…I am Jim, and in 1829 I walked 20 miles herding two cows... I am Isaac, and I escaped in 1784.” The students were among the first to pilot a new tour offered at Raynham House Museum called, “Standing Where They Stood,” the first of its kind that sheds light on slavery in the north.
