National Colonial Farm at Piscataway Park
3400 Bryan Point Road, Accokeek 20607 home
The Accokeek Foundation stewards 200 acres of Piscataway Park, a national park located in Accokeek, Maryland, on the shore of the Potomac River directly across from Mount Vernon. Our land serves as an outdoor classroom for educational programs, research, agricultural and conservation projects. The National Colonial Farm, an outdoor living history museum, was established by the Accokeek Foundation in 1958. The farm depicts life for an ordinary tobacco planting family in Prince George’s County in the 1770s. Historic sites like George Washington’s home, Mount Vernon, represent what many believe life was like in the colonial period. However, large plantations were far from the norm. Very few colonists enjoyed such luxury. The majority were poorer planters, tenant farmers, indentured servants, and slaves. Skilled interpreters lead tours of the National Colonial Farm, highlighting the colonial structures, fields, gardens, and animals. The park is open to the public year around.

Riversdale, an elegant Federal style plantation house, was constructed between 1801 and 1807 for Henri Stier, a Flemish aristocrat, and completed by his daughter, Rosalie, and her husband, George Calvert, grandson of the fifth Lord Baltimore. The Calverts’ son, Charles Benedict, who took over the estate after the death of his father, made Riversdale into a nationally recognized showplace for a wide variety of progressive agricultural practices. He was the principal founder of the Maryland Agricultural College (today the University of Maryland, College Park), providing the land for it and serving as its president. In addition, as a member of Congress, he was instrumental in the establishment of the United States Bureau (now Department) of Agriculture. Today, this elegant architectural gem has been restored to reflect the lifestyle of the Calverts in the early 19th century. The interpretive experience is enhanced by the variety of vegetables, fruits, herbs, flowers, and field crops grown in the demonstration gardens and orchard, and the Riversdale Kitchen Guild utilizes the produce in their “Seasonal Selections” foodways demonstrations. The museum hosts public events throughout the year, including lectures and hands-on workshops. Please check the above website for a listing of events.
