Touching The Past Program
In a program designed to focus on family and community, past and present, students explore colonial life in a tour of Philipsburg Manor that focuses on sensory experiences. Students tour the colonial manor house, including a kitchen area filled with touchable objects, and discuss how houses today differ from colonial homes. Visiting the barn/farm, activity center, and mill, students participate in actual work that would have been done on-site 250 years ago. Hands-on activities may include picking and carding wool, preparing food, and threshing wheat. 
 

**Note to parents:  Students must wear either their red Waverly t-shirts or another solid red colored shirt on this trip.  Teachers will communicate with parents via student folders which specific day their class will be attending.
