School Tours

Historic houses are great tools to help young minds develop a sense of place and history, and an understanding of links between past, present, and future. Students can be inspired to interpret the historical and cultural significance of their community while developing skills of observation, analysis, and evaluation. Hay House accomplishes these goals by offering age-specific school tours designed to complement GPS classroom standards and family events offering entertainment and education for all ages.
