Quince Orchard JuneFest 2017 at Pleasant View Historical Site, June 24

Date: June 24, 2017

Time: 12:00 Noon

Brought to life through the bold actions of Doers in the late 1800’s, Quince Orchard was a small farming town near Gaithersburg, Maryland that developed around the Civil War.

It survived for nearly 100 years, but then – like many communities across the country that have vanished due to stagnation, gentrification, or progress – it disappeared from the map.

Each year, we gather to capture and share the forgotten history of this community, and explore how increasingly diverse neighborhoods can and must come together to preserve history and shape our future.

Join us for an afternoon of food, music, fellowship, information and fun!

The historic Quince Orchard Colored School and Pleasant View Methodist Church will be open for tours. Share your favorite Pleasant View memories! The Quince Orchard Project will be on-site filming for its upcoming documentary about our noted community.
