Black History Month Exhibit and Reception at Coffield Community Center

An updated version of the History of Lyttonsville will be on exhibit in the lobby of the Gwendolyn E. Coffield Community Center through March 15. The exhibit displays a copy of the original deed conveying property in 1853 to Samuel Lytton, a freed slave. It also includes interesting maps, photographs, and numerous other documents and artifacts.

The exhibit can be viewed at the Gwendolyn E. Coffield Community Center, 2450 Lyttonsville Road, Silver Spring, MD.

The Lyttonsville Civic Association will host a reception on Friday, February 27, 2009 at 6:30 PM to celebrate Black History Month and the history of the community and invites interested people to join us.

The Center is open from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM Mondays through Thursday; 9:00 AM to 8:00 PM Fridays; 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM Saturdays and noon to 5:00 PM Sundays.
