The Historic Square at Stone Mountain Park is the perfect place to introduce your students to Georgia history. Here they can learn about Colonial Georgia, Antebellum Life or the Civil War in Georgia. These programs are set among a collection of historically restored authentic buildings relocated from around the state, which date from the late 1700’s through the turn of the 20th century. All three programs are presented by period dressed educators and include interactive demonstrations with artifacts that the students can observe and touch. After the program, your students may self-guide through this historic collection of 18 plus buildings, which are all appointed with furnishings and antiques of their time period. Each program also includes a visit to our Farmyard where students can interact with friendly farm animals while learning about the roles the animals played in the lives of the people.
The Historic Square also features the Native American Festival & Pow-Wow – the largest Native American event in Georgia in the fall. This event showcases Native American culture through dance, music, authentic craft demonstrations, cooking traditions, storytelling, wildlife presentations and more.
You may also choose to take your students back in time with Rosie The Riveter program which will introduce your students to the efforts and sacrifices of American civilians on the World War II home front, including the important role played by American women. Through a classroom presentation, authentic WWII military artifacts and a historic video, students will learn of the many industries in which women played a new role.
Last but not least, your students can discover what a diesel-electric locomotive is and how it operates. Our engineer will bring out our diesel-electric engine for your class and lead them through various demonstrations and signaling techniques along with history on the Georgia Railroad in the Stone Mountain Railroad - “The Rock Line” program. No matter when you choose to bring your class to Stone Mountain Park, our educational and fun field trip programs will bring your classroom studies to life!
