Do you have a child that loves history? On the first Saturday of every month (excluding June, July, and August) from 10:00 am to 12:30 pm the City of Raleigh’s Historical Resources and Museums Program will hold historically themed workshops for ages 10 – 13. We will engage Raleigh’s young citizens through hands-on experiences, field trips, and volunteering in order to foster an appreciation for local history and inspire active community participation.
The Historical Resources and Museum Program oversees operations and programs at Mordecai Historic Park, the City of Raleigh Museum, the Raleigh Trolley, the Pope House, the Latta House and University Site, the Tucker House, the Borden Building and Stone Circle at Fletcher Park, and the Fred Fletcher Amphitheater. Children will have the opportunity to participate in Raleigh history at all of these sites and more. We cover topics such as Native Americans in Wake County, slavery, and the turn of the century. This will be an ongoing program not meant to be completed in a year, but allows children and families to invest in their local history and take pride in their city.
