Educational Excursion to the 18th Century

Travel back through time to the 1770’s frontier!  Homeschoolers from around WV are invited to join us at

Prickett’s Fort in Marion County

on Friday, September 23rd, where family-friendly, costumed interpreters will bring alive the essence of 18th century fort life.  Learn about blacksmithing, weaving, hearth cooking, and more via our guided tours of the fort and blacksmith shop at either 10 am or 1 pm. Families can visit the museum (orientation gallery) at their pleasure.  We’re looking forward to another day of fun together!

Meet us at least 15 minutes before your tour time near the Visitor’s Center. We suggest you bring a picnic lunch for your family – and perhaps a picnic blanket.  Outdoor tables are available at the park, as well as vending drink machines.

There is also a gift shop with toys, books, and other fort treasures.
