Young Historian’s After-School Program

Filed under: Huntingtonian Junior,News |

Does your child love history?

Would your child like to make part of history come alive?

The Huntington Historical Society is offering an 8 session after school program for children ages 7 to 12.

Each session of this hands on program will be focused on one colonial project such as weaving on a loom, candle dipping, authentic colonial cooking, wooden toy construction, and visiting the newly renovated Huntington Arsenal. Participants will be able to wear colonial costumes, play original colonial games, and handle various artificats that typically are only viewed behind glass displays in museums.  This program will teach your child to truly appreciate colonial life, and by the end of the sessions, your child will have a better understanding of Huntington history and their heritage.  The best part, it’s non-competitive and fun!

Activities include:

Carding wool * Historical buliding Tours * Limberjack toy making * Butter churning * Weaving on looms * Colonial Cooking * Tour of the Arsenal

The program includes one session per week for a total of 8 sessions (2/29, 3/7, 3/14, 3/21, 3/28, 4/4, 4/18, 4/25)

The program will be held at the Conklin House and Barn at 2 High Street, Huntington from 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm.

Cost is $160 for members and $200 for non-members. For more information or to register call 427-7045 ext. 401 or 404
