This exhibit tells the intriguing story of American racehorse Durbar II and his victory over the horse of King George V at the Epsom Derby in 1914—just at the outbreak of World War I. Owned by Herman B. Duryea, uncle of Robert Heighe, Durbar II lived at Prospect Hill Farm (now the Hays-Heighe House) and is interred on the property. The exhibit also relates information about the British Royal Family’s passion for all equestrian sports, then and now, the use of horses in World War I, and the activity of British suffragettes at the start of the 20th century.
What does freedom mean to you? This exhibit brings to life the stories of documented individuals who sought or fought for freedom and whose lives engage and inspire. The Faces of Freedom initiative commemorates the 150th anniversary of the Maryland Constitution of 1864, which ended slavery in the state.
Faces of Freedom was made possible by a grant from the Maryland Humanities Council through support from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in the performance, lectures, films and discussions do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities or the Maryland Humanities Council.
This National Endowment for the Humanities traveling exhibition explores the concept of what makes a house a home. Complete with one hundred objects and interactive components.
