Fall Home School Day at Stagville

Event Description

Purchase tickets in advance for the October 2019 Home School Day at Stagville State Historic Site!


Historic Stagville invites all home school students to a day of hands-on educational activities for all ages. Students will get to participate in these activities, not just watch. Plus, all of our historic structures will be open to tour all day. Students learn about the history of slavery in North Carolina, the lives and cultures of enslaved people, and work and trades on an antebellum plantation.

On the schedule for this fall:

Archaeology lessons

Freedom Roads walks, featuring Underground Railroad history from North Carolina

Hearth cooking demonstrations

Crosscut saw and woodworking activities

19th Century Brickmaking

19th Century Pigments and Paints

And more!

Activities run all throughout the day, but we recommend you arrive by 2 p.m. to experience ALL possible activities.Wear clothes that you don't mind getting a little dirty, and sturdy walking shoes to get around our large site. We have picnic tables on the site for picnic lunches, but no food for sale on site.

Admission is $5.87 including all taxes and fees, per student, and tickets will not be refunded starting 24 hours before the event. Additional tickets can be purchased at the door with cash or check only!
