Roswell hosts Homeschool Day



ROSWELL, Ga. — The Roswell Convention and Visitors Bureau and “A Southern Trilogy: The Historic House Museums of Roswell” will host a Homeschool Day for homeschool students Sept. 8, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Barrington Hall, Bulloch Hall and Smith Plantation will be open for tours. Demonstrations and hands-on activities will be held at all three house museums so students can experience life in the 1800s.

Some of these activities include a journey on the Trail of Tears, seeing a water mill model in action, experiencing the Georgia Gold Land Lottery, quilting, basket making, cooking a corn dish over the open fire and making corn husk dolls.

“Interactive history is the best way to learn,” Diane Stone of Roswell’s Convention and Visitors Bureau said. “Parents of homeschool students are often looking for different ways to teach history as part of their required curriculum.”

Prices through Aug. 25 are $12 for adults and children, and children five and under receive free admission. After Aug. 25, prices are $15 for adults and children; children five and under are free. Registration is required.

To register and for more information, visit or call 770-640-3253.
