The Fourth Grade School Program is a rite of passage for the fortunate children of the Malone Central School District. We hear wonderful stories and memories from many who reminisce about their trip to the House of History. Here, they are able to step back in time and see what life in the 1800's was really like. Students are given a guided tour of the museum, where they are on the lookout for certain, special objects that are their responsibility to find and report back on. Then, they all come back together in the formal dining room for a snack of our famous Molasses Cookies (made by the previous visiting class) and milk. Students are then split into groups for hands-on activities such as cookie making, clothes-pin people, candle making, weaving or broom making. Finally, they are given the opportunity to purchase a momento from our Country Store.
We are always looking to help Franklin County history truly come alive for our visitors.
