“The mission of the AARCH Society is to identify, collect, preserve and exhibit the cultural objects, artifacts, and stories that tell and celebrate the unique history, culture, and heritage of African Americans in Frederick County, Maryland, for the purpose of educating the general public and deepening our understanding of how the African American past can shape and enrich the present and the future.
AARCH is devoted to preserving and disseminating the history and culture of African Americans living in Frederick County, Maryland. Our members work to identify, collect, and exhibit artifacts that tell the unique story of African Americans from our area, and travel throughout the region to share first-person and historical accounts. Our work facilitates an understanding of how the past shapes and enriches the present and the future of all citizens.” –aarchsociety.org
