We will be offering two Home School Days this fall. The first one will be on Friday, October 11 from 1:30 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. The second one will be Wednesday, October 16 from 1:30 p.m. until 3:30 p.m.
This event will allow home school families to explore the village at a special educational rate of $5 per child and per parent or guardian. Students will get a chance to visit the buildings, try some hands on activities, see demonstrations and learn about life in the 1830s. Old Economy Village was founded in 1824 by a German Pietistic Christian Communal Society called the Harmonists. They built their town 17 miles north of Pittsburgh on the Ohio River in modern day Ambridge.
You must register for one of these dates by Wednesday, October 9. Please contact David Miller, museum educator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 724-266-4500 ext.110.
