Did you know that the Lake County Historical Society provides a wide variety of educational programs, experiences, and partnerships to the children and adults in Lake County? Our reach extends to 36,000 people a year at our History Center in Painesville Township, at partner locations such as the Holden Arboretum, and in schools throughout the County.
In fact, we educate approximately 5,000 students a year from schools throughout Lake, Geauga, and Cuyahoga Counties in our youth education programs such as Pioneer School, Walking in their Moccasins, and our Civil War Education Day. We also partner with the Holden Arboretum to present immersive natural and cultural history programs about Little Mountain for upper elementary
school students, among other program partnerships. We even have a number of educational programs that we bring directly to the students in their schools!
This year we opened our 1820’s Householder General Store in the Pioneer Village which has allowed us to add an economics component to our Pioneer School program. This offers even more immersive educational experiences for children experiencing Pioneer School. Many of you have had your children experience Pioneer School or have attended it yourselves. Next year will see the return of Tally-Ho! which is a government class that transports students to the County Seat and Courthouse to learn about government and the importance of the vote in this election year. We are thrilled to continue to provide these great community resources.
With your help the Lake County Historical Society can continue to provide its unique educational programming. Your tax deductible gift to the Society’s Annual Fund can make all the difference to help LCHS provide the immersive, first person historical experiences not provided by the schools or anyone else in Lake County.
Through your support we can continue to educate the citizens of Lake County in the history that made Lake County what it is today!
