Doleman Black Heritage Museum to Christen New Location

The City of Hagerstown is pleased to welcome the Doleman Black Heritage Museum to 33-35 West Washington Street, Room 210. A grand opening celebration and ribbon cutting ceremony will take place on Saturday, December 7 at 12pm.

First opened as the Doleman Black History Museum in 1974 by founders Marguerite and Charles Doleman, it was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 2008 as the Doleman Black Heritage Museum (DBHM). The DBHM strives to build on the legacy of the Doleman family collection. The DBHM collects, preserves, exhibits, and interprets historic artifacts of African-Americans in Washington County, MD. It encourages historical, biographical, genealogical, and archaeological research, and serves as a resource for historical research on African-Americans locally and statewide. The DBHM’s new ADA-accessible location will enable it to accommodate all visitors.
