Acting Colonel Marcia "Kim" Douglas

Marcia “Kim” Douglas is the new leader of the Charles Town Maroons. She took over after the passing of  the late Colonel Frank Lumsden.

She is an herbalist extraordinaire, making wines, teas, medicines, and rubs from native herbs, plants, and fruits, the knowledge she acquired from her parents. She believes that every plant has its own use and is to be analyzed individually. She says that each plant and herb must be used correctly in order to achieve maximum benefit. At the Charles Town Maroon Council “Kim” wears many hats. She is the head tour guide and administrator for the Charles Town Maroon’s tours and attractions. She is also the lead dancer in the famous Charles Town Maroons drummers and Dancers.
