Walking with the Past School Tours

Posted on October 5, 2017 by Emily Roush

The Highlands Museum & Discovery Center will be presenting a special week of educational  programming geared toward middle and high schools students.   Walking with the Past school tours will take place October 18 through 20.  This event brings the past to life as participants take a walking tour of the historic Ashland Cemetery.  Walking with the Past is a unique educational experience that shows students how local people and events fit in the larger scheme of state and national history.  The stories of individuals buried in the Ashland Cemetery cover a wide range of topics including but not limited to the Industrial Revolution, the Civil War, segregation, women’s suffrage, and World War II.

The cost to attend Walking with the Past school tours is $5 per student.  There is no charge for teachers and school staff members.  Money raised from this event helps provide educational programs and exhibits at the Highlands Museum as well as fund preservation work in the Ashland Cemetery.

Educators interested in scheduling a tour for Walking with the Past or have questions about the program can call the Highlands Museum 606-329-8888 or email emily@highlandsmuseum.com.  Time slots are limited and are by reservation only.
