Freedomland, An American-History Amusement Park

Do you love amusement parks? Ever heard of Freedomland U.S.A., the American-history themed amusement park in the Bronx from the 1960s? Most people haven't! Together we will explore the inspiration for this forgotten park, how it depicted American history through its attractions, and why it (suspiciously) failed after just five operating seasons.

Maya Rook is a historian, educator, and creator of History Happy Hour. She holds an MA in American History from the University at Albany and strives to blend critical insight with humor and empathy in her investigations of the past. Check out her podcast and get to know more about Maya's unique approach to these social and educational events.
