History in a Suit Case

In addition to the School Tours of the Historical Village, we offer a program called “History in a Suitcase.” Period dressed docents will come to your school and bring various historical artifacts. Our presentation consists of a brief history of how and why Hilliard was settled with the emphasis on life in the 1800s. As we show our artifacts we explain what it was like to grow up in a log cabin, to go to a one room schoolhouse and the importance of making a living raising crops and livestock. This serves as an introduction for later visits to the Historical Village. Please contact the Society office to set up a program at your school. Reservations are required. A donation to our Society would greatly be appreciated.
