The historic Oak Hill Schoolhouse is ready to welcome Girl Scouts on Saturday, August 14th for a unique experience. Built in 1886 by the Knob Creek Community, Oak Hill School housed 1st – 8th grade students until 1952. It was relocated to Jonesborough and preserved, and today it continues to welcome students as a part of the Oak Hill School Heritage Education Program. Now you can be a part of this award winning, hands-on learning experience!
The school day will start at 9:00 am and end at 2:00 pm and will include lessons in arithmetic, reading, penmanship using quill pens, history, geography, and much more. Lunch will be held on the grounds of the schoolhouse but Scouts and chaperones must bring their own lunches. There will also be recess, of course. The cost for the day is $5.00 per Girl Scout, and pre-registration is required as space is limited to just 18 Scouts. We will not be accepting registrations the day of the event. The day will start with a brief orientation at the Jonesborough Visitor’s Center. Contact the Heritage Alliance at 423-753-9580, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to register your Girl Scout or troop. This program is suggested for Brownies-Ambassador. The money will assist with the continued maintenance of the building and help support the Oak Hill School Heritage Education Program. Aspects of this program can be connected to requirements for multiple Girl Scout badges.
