Old Fort Harrod State Park invites teachers to schedule educational field trips for their students to the park in Harrodsburg, the site of Kentucky’s first permanent settlement.
The park gives students the opportunity to learn by experiencing the frontier with living history interpreters, who engage them with hands-on conversations. The park also includes Kentucky’s first schoolhouse, the oldest cemetery in the state, the log cabin in which the parents of president Abraham Lincoln were married, a museum, an animal corral and a picnic and playground area.
Field trips are available throughout the year; interpreters are present and the museum is open April 16-Oct. 31. Email David Coleman for more information.
