Tannehill State Park Homeschool Day

Travel back in time for some hands-on learning at the Tannehill Ironworks Historical State Park Homeschool Day!

Tannehill Ironworks Historical State Park is located on 1500 acres in McCalla, Alabama. Not only can you enjoy the hiking, camping and outdoor recreation, the park is home to the Alabama Iron and Steel Museum. You will also find a minature working railroad, a blacksmith, miller, craftsman artisans and pioneer farm (from Spring to Fall) to give your family a real taste of life as it was during the 1800's.

Tannehill Ironworks Historical State Park is having a field trip day for homeschoolers on Wednesday April 24th. It is going to be a great day including the Iron and Steel Museum of Alabama and tours of the three 150+ year old furnaces PLUS a scratch mould workshop that the students make and watch poured in Iron! Enjoy a train ride across the Park and a visit to the sweet shop for homemade candies. Cost will be $16 for each person participating in the scratch block mould workshop to be poured in Iron. If a parent wants to skip making one then the cost is $5. You can register by calling Jennifer Watts at the Museum (205) 477-5711 or contacting Lee McKee at mckeemetalarts@yahoo.com.

Tannehill also offers some classes at this time. Most are held on the weekends, but in the future they will be holding a homeschoolers blacksmithing/metal casting class every Thursday.
