Hands-On Learning Opportunities

Kids like to touch things!
And history should never be out of reach.

One of the key components of the Harris Cabin Project is the opportunity to create a hands-on exhibit that brings the Pioneer time period to life for young students.

Museum tours often mean "no touching allowed", but the cabin restoration project is focused on allowing students to get up close and personal with early Indiana history.

We're very excited about this chance to provide an enhanced learning experience for students of all ages. 

With the combination of the rustic Harris Cabin and the stately Gaff Mansion, Hillforest Foundation will be in a unique position to showcase the growth and development between 1820 to 1860 to all of our visitors. 

Educational programming with be available that encompasses areas of Political Science, Folklore, Archaeology, Architecture, Building Sciences and Preservation Trades.
