Our 10.5 acre site plays host to fourth and fifth grade students of Texas and Colonial history by providing a structured day-long series of living history experiences that makes learning history a participatory event. This seasonal offering for the months of April and May is “by appointment only” and is geared for between 60 and 120 students per day at a cost of $5 per child.
After students are divided into eleven groups, they begin a 4.5 to 5 hour tour of sites where docents present a 20 minute talk, demonstrations and children’s activity about the following subjects: Native American history, Blacksmithing, Livery stable and Chuck Wagon, Cabinetmaking, Water resources and conservation, Sewing and Needle crafts, Log cabin living and food preparation, General store, Candle making, Adobe brick making and Horno oven, and Texas Rangers. There is also a 30 minute break for lunch at the covered Heritage Pavilion.
Fourth and fifth grade students from public and private schools are welcome. Please contact us for further information. A power point cd for your school is available upon request.
