Homeschoolers are invited to Bacon’s Castle for a dedicated opportunity to explore the site on Wednesday, May 24th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Historic interpreters will provide guided tours of the 1665 manor house and students will be able to engage histories and themes of revolution, plantation life and slavery, and more! We will also be offering hands-on activities, crafts, scavenger hunts, and more. This event is on-going and homeschool families are invited to arrive at anytime.
