South Laurel/Montpelier: Montpelier Mansion moves programs during renovations
Montpelier Mansion will be closed for a period of time this year for some major restoration work dealing primarily with moisture control issues. While the actual facility is closed, some programs usually offered there will be held at different venues in the community or outdoors on the mansion grounds. On Feb. 26, in celebration of Black History Month, Montpelier and the Deerfield Run Community Center are hosting a free hands-on experience for children ages 5 through 12, focusing on making corn husk dolls. These dolls will be like those the children in 18th-century Maryland made and used as playthings. The event is scheduled from 2:30 to 4 p.m. at the community center.
