The Heritage Alliance offered our first Virtual Field Trip Day on May 18. This trip guides students throughout Tennessee’s Oldest Town. It features stops and activities at the Oak Hill Schoolhouse, a Jonesborough Town Tour Scavenger Hunt, Old Jonesborough Cemetery mini tour, a tour of the Chester Inn Museum’s bedroom, a tour of the Christopher Taylor House including the second floor, a reading of Virgie Goes to School with Us Boys by Elizabeth Fitzgerald Howard, a History Detective activity with artifacts in the Jonesborough/Washington County History Museum, a tour of the Chuckey Depot Museum, and special, bonus videos.
We created a packet for parents/educators to use along with the videos. Access the Virtual Fieldtrip Packet HERE.
You can access the videos at the following links via the Chester Inn Museum State Historic Site and Museum’s YouTube page.
