School Programs

We present many programs related to the history of Washington to both public and private schools in town. Recent programs have included a Powerpoint presentation about the history of Washington, going to school in a one room schoolhouse, hands-on artifact identification activities, map reading, farming, the Civil War, and more. Please contact the Museum Curator one month in advance to schedule a program for your class: curator@gunnhistoricalmuseum.org
