Sharyn Martin is a docent and member of the Deale Area Historical Society. When she discovered the African-American Meeting House (1895) at the Herrington Harbour North Historic Village, it became especially close to her because of the significance of that building in the African-American community in the Deale area. This is Sharyn’s story of the special place this building has in our history and the heritage that is still relevant today.
