Join us for our Annual Home Educator’s Living History Days for children! The program is geared for children ages 8 to 10 years old, although children younger and older benefit and can participate in the hands-on experience of 18th-century life. Programs can rotate among spinning and weaving, blacksmithing, pottery, a walking tour, Colonial medicine, basket making, tin punching, and rope making.

There will be two spring days of Living History offered for homeschool students: Friday, April 12, 2024, and Friday, April 19, 2024 – 8:30am until 12:30pm. Each day will have the same schedule.

Families will be assigned to a group and will rotate from station to station on a timed schedule. If you prefer to be in the same group as another family who is attending, you must give notification at the time of purchasing your tickets. No group changes will be made after April 16. Tickets must be purchased online prior to April 16.

Living History will end at 12:30pm and families can eat their packed lunches on the grounds. After lunch, your time is your own. Please feel free to walk the trails, visit the historic buildings again, or head home.

Advance registration is required for this event. Adults/Chaperones are $6/each, Children 4 and up are $5/each, and Children 3 and under are $1/each. 

Tickets are non-refundable. This is a rain or shine event. After purchasing tickets, a confirmation email will be sent to you. 

Please email with any questions.
