Help Establish A Permanent African American and Abolitionist Center In Concord, MA
I’m always looking for a worthwhile cause to volunteer or help with.
Recently I became aware of and interested in helping a local project in my hometown. The project called “Save The Caesar Robbins House.”
Caesar Robbins was a Concord resident and patriot veteran of the American Revolution in 1776. In 1780 he was emancipated and built a one-room house in Concord near the Old North Bridge.
A local non-profit corporation called “The Drinking Gourd Project,” was formed to save this house from demolition. Its main mission is to save, restore and adapt the 1780 home of Caesar Robbins and to create the Robbins house Educational Center.
Part of saving this house involves coordinating efforts to purchase and move the house close to its original site across from the “Old Manse” on the North Bridge property and turn it into Concord’s Civil Liberties Museum.
My first question was “Why is it called the Drinking gourd Project?” For that answer, see tomorrows post!
