History Alive - Living History Program

This tour is an add-on option with school field trips; it is not a stand alone tour – an additional 1 hour

A visit to the Appalachian Settlement, weather permitting, may be added to School Field Trip Tour 1 or 2. Students will learn how the Appalachian settlers lived in the 1840's and how pioneer families coped with daily difficulties. They will visit a historic log cabin and the blacksmith shop. They may see the sorghum syrup mill or some craftsmen such as a woodworker, a weaver, or quilters. Living history volunteers dressed in period clothing are a part of this program when available. Otherwise, docents will explain how frontier families lived. This program is not offered in during winter months.

Admission Fee for History Alive

$2 per student; $2 per adult

*The outdoor option is not offered in after November 15 or before March 15. It is available for groups of 20 or more students and advance reservations are required.
