The Hermitage: Hermitage Home School Day

Join us this year for our Homeschool Days! From learning military drills to celebrating the holidays at The Hermitage, our Homeschool Days are full of interactive activities and learning opportunities for the whole family! For questions, please contact Patrick Martin at pmartin@thehermitage.com or 615-889-2941 ex. 241.


Have you ever been the last person to learn something that everyone else knows? For the enslaved people in West Texas, news of Emancipation didn’t come until June 1865. Help us commemorate Juneteenth as a day to remember the enslaved of the United States by learning more about the enslaved at The Hermitage. Explore the Field Quarter, First Hermitage, the Triplex, and Alfred’s Cabin as you practice the tools historians use to learn more about enslaved people.

Homeschool Days program activities are from 9 am – 12 pm and include an interpreter-led tour of the mansion, self-guided tour of the Hermitage grounds, exhibit galleries, and film. Pack a picnic lunch and eat at the tables available on the property, or eat onsite in The Kitchen Cabinet Café.

Ticket Information: $18 and available for purchase through the above registration button.


Social Stories, visual supports, and modified maps are available at www.thehermitage.com.
