Once again, Meadowcroft Rockshelter and Historic Village is opening its doors to our region’s homeschoolers and their families for a unique opportunity to experience the development of our region. Through our hands-on educational programs that explore life on the land in the upper Ohio Valley, students will experience the cultural changes of our region from prehistory to the 19th century.

Explore rural life in the upper Ohio Valley with a visit to Meadowcroft’s 19th century village. Students will visit historic houses, a blacksmith’s shop, and a one room school house to learn what life was like before modern conveniences.

Stepping further back in time to our recreated 16th century Indian Village, students can learn about the complex relationship between nature and man during a program emphasizing our area’s late prehistoric agriculturalists, the Monongahela culture.

Tours of the Meadowcroft Rockshelter will also be available. Students will discover why people camped at the site over the course of 16,000 years and learn about the hunter-gatherer lifestyle of the people who used the site.

Note: Meadowcroft Rockshelter and Historic Village is an outdoor facility, so make sure to dress for the weather! There is no food service on site, however picnic tables are available for your use.
