The Funk Heritage Center of Reinhardt University is Georgia’s Official Frontier and Southeastern Indian Interpretive Center. School field trips are designed to meet many K-12 Georgia social studies and science standards of excellence for various grade levels. In addition to indoor museum tours about Georgia’s first people, an outdoor living history program is available and may be added to a field trip, weather permitting.
The History Alive program is held in the Appalachian Settlement March 15 through November 15. Students will visit an historic log cabin, a blacksmith shop and learn how people lived in the 1840s. Additional 30 minute programs may be added to indoor tours including pioneer music for younger children and a program about Georgia’s iron industry for older students. Picnic tables are available outdoors to accommodate up to 170 children.
Schedule all school tours a minimum of 3 weeks in advance. A staff person will work with teachers to customize a tour.
