From its beginnings in 1974, the Doleman Black Heritage Museum has sought to preserve and enhance the history and culture of blacks in Washington County Maryland and the United States through conservation, education, and community involvement. Today we are entering an exciting new chapter as plans for a permanent home for the collection begin.


The Doleman collection is comprised of thousands of artifacts ranging from autographs, birth records, over 450 books, deeds of slave sales, dolls, figurines, furniture, magazines, obituaries, paintings, photographs, poetry pros, slave quads and sculptures, ranging from pre-civil war 19th century to early mid and late 20th century.


On October 19, 2008 the DBHM hosted their 1st fundraiser, ‘An Evening of Jazz’, at the University System of Maryland at Hagersown. The featured artist for the evening was world renowned jazz pianist Marcus Johnson. The love and support that was displayed in coming out to support this fundraiser was beautiful. We plan to have many more amazing events like this and invite everyone to come and enjoy the festivites.
