Spring Home School Education Day

Event Description

Purchase tickets in advance for the April 2020 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 day:
-- Freedom Roads walks, featuring Underground Railroad history from North Carolina
-- Hearth cooking
-- Cowrie shell jewelry
-- 19th century brickmaking
-- Gardening
And more to come!

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 $5.39 (including 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!
