Bring Your Students
The educational objective of the Trent House School Program is to provide students with a basic understanding of the differences between everyday life in the early eighteenth century and the lifestyles children are familiar with in today’s world. This is achieved through presentation and discussion about the life and times of William Trent, his family, and enslaved servants.
The William Trent House educational experience is designed for groups studying local and state history in grades 3 through 8, and is particularly appropriate as part of the 4th grade social studies curriculum. Home school groups, camp programs, and public, private and charter schools are most welcome.
Weather permitting, students may eat their lunch on the grounds of the Trent House. Benches and tables are available in the gardens; reservations are required.
When making your reservation, please inquire about adding the exploration of the authentic 18th century kitchen garden; where touching and smelling the herbs and vegetables of colonial times can be a part of the school experience at the Trent House.
