The 20th year of the Emancipation Day “Walk to Freedom” drew a diverse group of more than 100 residents in the Fort-to-Fort trek on July 3. Participants walked 15.6-mile from Fort Christianvaern to Fort Frederik.
Events marking Emancipation Day will be held on St. Thomas, St. John and St. Croix.
Guests meandered through the almost 200-year-old former von Scholten property, getting a rare glimpse of the historic home, while sipping champagne and listening to tales of times that have long passed.
