Hands-on Heritage (HOMESCHOOL): April- Wait a Minute Mr. Postman!


Come to learn a new/old skill! 

Tyler State Park is partnering with Nichole Gerding of Thankful Sage Farm School to bring you ‘Hands-On Heritage.’

In each of these programs, we will discuss local history in context of the season, and try our hand at some heritage skills to take home to share with our families.  


What: Wait a Minute Mr. Postman!

We will be discussing the roles of postal couriers during the Revolution and beyond. While maneuvering treacherous roads, being accused of spying, or just delivering family news to another state, this role had a significant hand in forming our local and national history. We will be examining examples of old letters, secret holding key-letters, and wax seals. Out class hands-on activity will be working with Walnut Ink and Natural Glue to make build a beautiful letter and envelope.

Where: The Classroom at Tyler State Park 

Who: 12 and up, unaccompanied student drop-off
