Home School Tours
The Funk Heritage Center is pleased to offer guided tours for our growing home school population in 2014. This opportunity is available for groups of 10 or more home school children and their parents. Please visit the link for school trips to find out information about our tours for students and determine which tour you are interested in taking. Reservations are required at least three weeks in advance for guided tours. The fee for guided tours is either $5 for a one hour tour or $6 for the hour and a half tour for each student. Each adult in the group will pay $7. Tours of the Appalachian Settlement can be added to the tour for a $2 fee.
Also in 2014, we will offer a special home school Appalachian Settlement Day on Wednesday, April 16 from 10 a.m. until noon. This program will feature living history volunteers dressed in period clothing. Children will visit log cabins, the blacksmith shop, sorghum syrup mill and observe settlers demonstrating crafts. They will also enjoy pioneer games and old-time music. The fee is $7 per child/adult and the deadline for reservations and payment is April 1. Click here to download a flier on this program.
The October Georgia History Timeline will be held on October 8 and 9 and Pioneer Days will be held on May 7 and 8. 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 Julie Shrout, our School Activities Coordinator, at (770) 720-5969 or email her at email@example.com.
