FIELD TRIPS

Student field trips to the Hull Family Home & Farmstead are being scheduled from May through October 2016.  Students will learn through the Hull Family about the Western New York frontier and pioneer life in the early 1800s.  Teachers can access an introductory video and materials (accessible at the bottom of this page) that can be shown to students prior to their trip.

There will be a $50 per classroom fee for field trips.  We request that there be a 1:10 adult-to-child ratio for supervision purposes.  Please note that due to its historic nature, the Hull House is not handicapped accessible.  

For more information, please contact Suzanne Jacobs, Education Director.
