Visit our Exhibit Booth in Baltimore in July or take a virtual tour here. Our booth will be a museum-like experience dedicated to the mission and ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland and our history, highlighting our work in truth and reconciliation and reparations. New content will be added until the start of Convention on July 8. In the meantime, enjoy a taste of the kinds of things you will see, and learn more about the Diocese of Maryland!

In our booth we will feature stories and artifacts from our in-depth archives, including a timeline of slavery and systemic racism in our state, diocese and congregations. We will tell the story of where we have come from and who we are together today as a community of love.

Our Claggett Center is rich in history dating back to prehistoric times. In more recent times, John Hasselbach purchased this 300-acre farm with its stately mansion in 1811. At his death in 1840, the plantation was supported by the labor of 34 enslaved house servants and farm laborers. Today, Claggett offers outreach camping programs for children of who are victims of an opioid-addicted environments, summer camps, spiritual programs for youth and adults and more. Claggett also hosts a multitude of secular and religious non-profit groups, including educational institutions and social justice organizations.
