Historic Activities Day
Historic Activities Day is a special day at Millbrook Village for prearranged school groups only. This event is held on a school day in late May, and is open to school groups only, not to the general public.

Announcements are sent to regional schools in March. If a notice has not reached you, call the park at (570) 426-2452 (e-mail)
