Teaching through our historic sites

Historic Edenton

Guidelines for Your Visit

  • Upon arrival, groups should remain in their vehicles or outside the Visitor Center while the teacher or group leader checks in with the site staff in the Visitor Center. This may be an appropriate time for a restroom break if your travel time was lengthy.
  • Please remember there is to be no food, drink or gum in the Visitor Center or any of the historic buildings you may tour.
  • Large groups will be broken down into smaller units. You will be advised on what size your groups should be when you schedule your visit. Please have your groups broken down prior to arrival to save time for your tour.
  • Discipline of the group is the responsibility of the teacher(s) and chaperones. We recommend at least one adult chaperone for every 10 students.
  • If your group is going to be 10-15 minutes late, please call the site. Your scheduled time is reserved for your class. Depending on whether there are other classes scheduled that day, your program may be scaled back in order to fit your class in. We will not disrupt another class's scheduled time for late arrivals.
  • Parts of the tour and exhibits will be outside. Have your students dress appropriately for the weather. Comfortable shoes are a must.
  • March, April and May are the months that most school group visits occur. Schedule early if you care to visit during this time. For a more relaxed and enjoyable visit, you may wish to schedule your field trip in the fall when it is not so busy.
