Why Hart Square Village for our field trip?
Hart Square is the nation’s largest collection of historic log cabins. When students visit the Village, they are not just walking through a museum. They get to observe artists and tradespeople at work and gain a deeper appreciation for the Early American pioneers with our hands-on activities. We cap field trips at 200 students a day to provide a more intimate and memorable experience for your school.
What happens on a visit?
Our artisan team includes a blacksmith, Native American storyteller, apple cider maker and tour guide. All of our programs are designed to further children’s understanding of the pioneer experience in Early America.

Our Field Trip Artisans
During a visit to Hart Square, students will have the opportunity to rotate through 3 educational experiences and a tour of the village. Generally, these experiences will feature Apple Cider Making, Blacksmithing, and Native American Folklore. Music of Appalachia may be substituted on some days.
Also, students will participate in an intimate tour of our collection. Here, they will learn how to contextualize the pioneer experience and relate it to their modern world.
Students are $15 each. All teachers and administrative staff are free.
