The her­itage of Mary­land’s to­bacco in­dus­try is the fo­cus of a sym­po­sium 1-3 p.m. June 11 in­side the to­bacco barn at Seren­ity Farm in Bene­dict.

The dis­cus­sion, mod­er­ated by Buddy Hance, for­mer Mary­land sec­re­tary of agri­cul­ture, will high­light the role of bas­ketry used to trans­port to­bacco to mar­ket, early uses of to­bacco by Amer­i­can Indians, the role of to­bacco in the found­ing of St. Mary’s City and Port To­bacco and the so­cial and fam­ily cul­tural fab­ric and com­mu­nity her­itage rais­ing to­bacco. Lastly, the event will ex­am­ine the trans­for­ma­tion of farm­ing since the state buy-out of to­bacco farms and the Farm Her­itage Con­ser­vancy’s preser­va­tion of South­ern Mary­land farm­land.
