Join us for our Annual Home Educators’ Living History Day 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 vary, and may include spinning and weaving, blacksmithing, pottery, a walking tour, Colonial medicine, basket making, tin punching, and Colonial games.

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 by emailing No group changes will be made after May 1st. Tickets must be purchased online prior to May 1st at 5 pm. After this time, tickets will not be available.

Families should arrive no later than 9:30 to get checked in. 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.
