The Remond Family of Hamilton Hall and Salem’s African-American Community in the Nineteenth Century

September 29, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Dr. Donna Seger of the Salem State History Department will give an illustrated presentation on the Remond family of Salem, including John and Nancy Remond and their 8 children. The Remonds were the resident caterers of Hamilton Hall in the middle of the 19th century. They were not only entrepreneurs, but also advocates for school desegregation, the abolition of slavery, and women’s suffrage. A short tour will follow, including the room where The Remonds prepared feasts for such dignitaries as Nathaniel Bowditch, and the Marquis de Lafayette. nLearn more here. n Source: https://www.salem.org/event/the-remond-family-of-hamilton-hall-and-salems-african-american-community-in-the-nineteenth-century/2019-09-29/
