Mid-Shore History: Frederick Douglass and Wye House with Richard Tilghman (Talbot Spy)

Punching above its weight class, the Talbot Spy is an online news publication covering history, culture and politics of the Shore. Publisher Dave Wheelan recently posted an interview with Richard Tilghman, descendant of Governor Edward Lloyd IV and owner of the Wye House.

Mr. Tilghman shares his family history which is inextricably and eternally linked with the family history of Dr. Frederick (Bailey) Douglass.

In recent years Mr. Tilghman and his family have opened the grounds of Wye House to a team of archaeology students from the University of Maryland, led by Prof. Mark Leone.

For more info on the archaeology project visit HERE.

Editor’s Note:

We’ve recently made contact with Mr. Dave Wheelan of the Talbot Spy and hope to connect sometime in the near future for a tour of Cedar Hill.
