Field Trips
Field trips are $15 per student. A financial accommodation of $10 a student is made for Title 1 schools and other qualifying groups.  Teachers and administrative staff are free. Chaperones are $20. We prefer to host a school’s entire grade level as opposed to individual classrooms so the kids can be exposed to several crafts and cabins. We have a minimum of 50 children and a maximum of 200 children per field trip. Please email

Hands-On Classes
Hart Square offers specialized classes for students to learn old time crafts and trades when they visit Hart Square Village. We try to customize these class stations to each teacher’s specifications, tying in history learned in the classroom with a hands-on activity. Recent courses (pictured above) include “Corn Husk Angels and the History of Corn in the South” and “Canjo Making and the History of Appalachian Instruments.”

While at Hart Square Village, students will participate in a hands-on class, get a tour of a few of our original log homes, and observe an artisan at work. Please be in touch with us:
