Per Montgomery Parks:
The Josiah Henson Park is a 3.34-acre park located at 11420 Old Georgetown Road in the Luxmanor Community of North Bethesda. The goal of the park project is to create a museum dedicated to telling the story of resilience and perseverance in overcoming slavery, based on the detailed words and experiences of Josiah Henson – enslaved in Montgomery County for much of his life. The project includes:
- The conversion of the historic Riley/Bolten House into a public museum
- The construction of a new 2,900 SF visitor center with a bus-drop off
- Additional parking on the former Rozier property
- The installation of exhibits that educate and interpret African American History in Montgomery County
- The exhibits will include a first-person narrative of Josiah Henson
In June 2013, the Montgomery County Planning Board approved the Josiah Henson Park Facility Plan. The facility plan included the recommendation to rehabilitate Josiah Henson Park including the conversion of the historic house into a museum, the construction of a new orientation building, and a new site design that would make the park more accessible for visitors.
