OELLA — Because of erroneous information supplied to The Sun, the size and location of the Benjamin Banneker Historical Park and Museum was incorrectly reported in a Nov. 11 article. The 142-acre park is at Oella Avenue and Old Frederick Road in Baltimore County. The Sun incorrectly reported that the museum's new supervisor, Steven Lee, formerly worked at the city's Heritage Museum. Lee continues to work as director of the Heritage Museum.

The Sun regrets the errors.
