(All ages) Since the founding of the Frying Pan Baptist Meeting House in 1783, African Americans, both free and enslaved, made up a significant portion of the church’s congregation. 

Though they worshipped with whites and were baptized with whites, they were not given the same rights and privileges as white members. This struggle within the church mirrored the same struggle of African Americans within Fairfax County for their rights and freedoms. 

Learn about this era as a special guest speaker, historic interpreters and exhibits add to the story of the Meeting House. 

The program will be held at the Frying Pan Meeting House from 1 to 4 p.m. Parking is available at Frying Pan Farm Park. Take a free wagon ride shuttle from the Country Store to the Meeting House. 

The program is free, but donations will be gratefully accepted.
