Big Kid Day at Oak Hill School

September 24, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Why should kids have all the fun? On Saturday, September 24, the schoolhouse will be open for a Big Kid Day, where students 18 and older are welcome to come and experience a school day in 1893.
Built in 1886 by the Knob Creek Community, Oak Hill School housed 1st – 8th grade students until 1952. It was relocated to Jonesborough and preserved, and today it continues to welcome students.
The day will start at 9:00 and end at 1:00 and will include lessons in arithmetic, reading, penmanship using quill pens, history, geography, and much more. There will be recess, of course. The cost for the day is $5.00 per student, and reservations are required as space is limited. Contact the Heritage Alliance at 423-753-9580, or email us at info@heritageall.org to make a reservation. The money will assist with the continued maintenance of the building and help support the Oak Hill School Heritage Education Program. Through this program, students from across the region visit Oak Hill School for an experiential, hands-on learning experience.
Visit with us at Oak Hill School! Step back in time, hear the stories, write with a quill pen, and experience history.
