Home School Tours
The Funk Heritage Center is pleased to offer guided tours for our growing home school population. This opportunity is available for groups of 15 or more home school children plus their parents. Please visit the link for school trips to find out information about our tours offered/admission fee (plus tax) for students and to determine which tour you are interested in taking. Reservations are required at least three weeks in advance with pre-payment for guided tours. Appalachian Settlement tours are available for groups of 30 or more with a $2 additional fee.
The Georgia History Timeline program is held in October and Pioneer Days is held in May. Homeschool students may join a group of elementary school classes on a space available basis. These programs are held in the Appalachian Settlement and they are also excellent opportunities for home schooling families to expose their children to our outdoor history programs. If you have questions concerning our home school programs or to schedule a tour, please call Amy Baker, our School Activities Coordinator, at (770) 720-5969.
