A visit from the Cub Scouts!

Thursday, September 27, 2018

The 1st Burk’s Falls Cub Scouts visited the Watt Century Farm House and learned a lot about local history. A special thank you to our President, Diane Brandt for planning a special program for the group. The Cubs participated in a scavenger hunt, identified mystery artifacts and played a game of “I Spy” in the heritage site.

The children left with an understanding of how our community has grown and changed and was introduced to the importance of preserving history. The study of heritage in local context puts value in History as a learning living source, helps the understanding of historical concepts and helps to understand the world in which we live, contributing to the multiple understanding of history and to the building of the three pillars of history education: History - Memory – Identity.
