Celebrate Freedom in Fairfax County Parks on Juneteenth

​Exploring our Historic Meeting House and Grounds.

  • Saturday, June 15, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. 
  • Free tour, registration recommended 
  • As we celebrate Juneteenth and the legacy of freedom it represents, join us to explore the history of the free and enslaved African American members of the Frying Pan Baptist Meeting House.  
  • Ongoing tours will take you through the church, the surrounding grounds and will talk about the former location of the Lee house, home of an African American family who lived on the property and worshipped at the church after the Civil War.

First time visiting?  Please do not feed our farm animals.

That can cause illness and expensive vet visits. Please respect the animals on our working farm, and enjoy our classes, events, activities and rides.
