Sandy Spring Museum

Sandy Spring Museum preserves artifacts and archival records from Sandy Spring’s storied past as an 18th-century Quaker community that eventually grew into what was at the time one of Maryland’s cultural and industrial hubs. In several exhibits, some of which rotate periodically, visitors can walk through a traditional farmhouse kitchen from a bygone era, explore the area’s historical social clubs, or learn about the plight of one of the country’s first and oldest communities of African American landowners. The museum also hosts events and community programs, such as a historic homes tour.

Customer Reviews

The manager at the Sandy Spring Museum, Robin, was very friendly and helpful She gave my group a lot of interesting background information about the area

Very small but interesting museum
Carolyn I. · September 1, 2014
Very interesting information about early Quaker life and slavery. Would probably be of most interest to folks living in the Sandy Spring, Olney, and Ashton area.
