Field Trip - Hans Herr House

Here in central PA we have many, many opportunities for field trips, which is proving to be one of our favorite things about homeschooling.   A few weeks ago, we went to the Hans Herr House. Built in 1719, it turned out to be a perfect place for learning about colonial life in rural PA.  We also got to take a peek at a still-under-construction Longhouse - a large multi-family home made of logs, saplings and tree bark. These homes of Native Americans once dotted the surrounding countryside and in some places, thousands of people lived together in towns filled with longhouses.
