About this Program: The freedom house is where visitors can think about what makes a house a home? The Jones-Hall-Sims House was built in 1874 and originally belonged to the formerly enslaved Richard Jones in Poolesville, Maryland. It is the first house built in what became the free African American community of Jonesville, Maryland.
