School & Group Tours
Mount Gulian’s staff loves to teach young people about American history. It’s one of our favorite things to do. We know that young people learn best when they are actively involved in the learning process and when history is shown to be relevant to their own experiences.
Our three programs are: "A Child’s Life in Colonial Times", "Dutche Settlers and Trade with the Native Americans", "A Soldier’s Life During the Revolutionary War". Click HERE for program details. Schools and groups may visit Mount Gulian and have lunch on the riverside lawn, weather permitting. Or, our staff will gladly bring our programs to your school.
