Dyckman Farmhouse Hosts Community Conversation at Inwood Public Library

Dyckman Farmhouse Museum will host a community panel, at the auditorium in the Inwood branch of the New York Public Library, on its project, DyckmanDISCOVERED, which will illuminate the narrative of the enslaved and freed peoples who lived and worked on the farm and throughout, what is now, Inwood. Come listen to expert researchers and historians discuss their work and give your input on what you would like to know more about. After the conversation concludes, we invite you to visit the Dyckman Farmhouse to take a fresh look at the exhibit, Ground Revision, and converse with staff and artist in residence, Peter Hoffmeister.
