ROSWELL, Ga. – The Roswell Convention and Visitors Bureau and “A Southern Trilogy: The Historic Homes of Roswell” will host a Homeschool Day for homeschool students on Friday, Sept. 26, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Barrington Hall, Bulloch Hall and Smith Plantation will feature an open house format during those hours and tours will be available. In addition, demonstrations and hands-on activities will occur at all three homes so that students can experience life in the 1800s.

Some of these activities include quilting, candle dipping, drawing water from the well for washing and bathing, churning butter, smoking meat in the smokehouse and musket fire demonstrations.

“Interactive history is the best way to learn,” said Dotty Etris, executive director of the Roswell Convention and Visitors Bureau. “Parents of homeschool students are often looking for different ways to teach history as part of their required curriculum.”

Prices through Sept. 19 are $12 for adults and children; children under 6 are free.

After Sept. 19, prices are $15 for adults and children 6 and older. Registration is required. To register and for information, visit www.visitroswellga.com or call 770-640-3253.
