Pemberton Hall celebrates Salisbury’s heritage during Natl. Folk Festival

SALISBURY, Md. – With so many new faces in town for the National Folk Festival, local organizations wanted to take advantage of the crowds and share a little of their own history.

The Pemberton Hall foundation hosted a colonial social to educate the community and the many visitors in town about colonial America.

With roots as far back as 1741, the folks at Pemberton Hall tell 47 ABC the quaint and quiet property serves as a still-standing reminder of our nation’s past.

Dressed in traditional colonial attire, members of the foundation say the social was a great opportunity for families to escape the hustle and bustle of the folk festival and teach them the importance of preserving historic buildings.

Joan Matyiko, Pemberton Park’s docent said, “This is an excellent place to come and relax” Matyiko said she wants people to cherish history and to cherish the structures at Pemberton.
