When John and Rachel Carroll moved into their farm house in the fall of 1825 they could not have imagined that it would one day be preserved as an historic resource in Acadia National Park.

Students are welcome to join role-playing rangers in historical recreation of the Carroll Homestead. Designed around fourth grade Maine state standards, this program explores the contrast between 1800s Maine and contemporary society. Games, costumes, and the beautiful "Mountain House" tell a story of one family's subsistence life in early Maine.
