In this guided activity park rangers pretend they have discovered a worn wooden crate in the attic of the old stone house. Inside they find items belonging to a one time resident of Friendship Hill, Albert Gallatin. Students become historians as they attempt to discover what the objects are and what they tell us about Gallatin and his family.

This program is offered in the spring and the fall. Call for availability.
