The Heritage Alliance is hosting its very first Homeschool Day all throughout Jonesborough on Friday, May 18. The cost is $7.00 per student, no matter the amount of activities. Parents, guardians, and non-participating younger children are free of charge. However, due to space limitations, not all chaperones and non-participating children will be able to participate in every activity.
Activities that day include lessons in Oak Hill School, a one room schoolhouse restored to the year 1892, Town Tours, Old Jonesborough Cemetery Tours, and hands-on activities with artifacts in the Jonesborough/Washington County History Museum. In addition, students can participate in history hunts at the Chester Inn State Historic Site and Museum, listen to a Storyteller, and participate in train based activities in the Chuckey Depot Railroad Museum. Archeological activities will be offered in the morning, and older students will have the opportunity to solve the mysteries surrounding the Cholera Epidemic of 1873 through various primary sources. It will be a day full of history and fun!
