Join us for our Annual Home Educators’ 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 two fall days of Living History offered for homeschool students: Thursday, September 14, 2023, and Friday, September 15, 2023- 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 September 11. Tickets must be purchased online prior to September 11.

Living History will end at 12:30 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.
