Historic Sotterley is pleased to announce the presenters for the 2019 Speaker Series. An important community outreach, this series is yet another way that this National Historic Landmark fulfills its mission of serving as an educational and cultural resource.
The Boeing Company has generously sponsored the Speaker Series at Historic Sotterley for the past 12 years. Because they are dedicated to promoting education and the arts within the Southern Maryland community, these events are free to the public.
