Brown, a fugitive slave who risked his life for freedom, and of Robert Newlin Verplanck and his involvement in the Civil War as an officer in the US Colored Troops.

Known as the great “trust buster” for his efforts to break up corporate monopolies he was also a dedicated conservationist, setting aside 200 million acres for national forests, parks and wildlife refuges. Diners will have the opportunity to meet and interact with one of America’s most popular Presidents. Candlelight dinner in our 18th century Dutch barn, prepared by Bridgecreek Catering. Period music by Julie and James Paradies. Silent and live auctions. Cocktails on the riverside lawn.
