Junior Historians Club
KIDS LEARNING PRESERVATION THROUGH IMMERSIVE PROJECTS
In 2020, the Junior Historians Club was established at the Wicoff House Museum, to teach kids about the importance of historic preservation through immersive and fun projects and activities.
In 2021, we launched the first virtual JHC program.
This 3-month program is self-paced and virtual. During each month, participants are mailed a packet of materials and secret codes to access videos on the museum website. Participants will receive an official JHC membership card and a program booklet that they will use to record their research, activities and findings throughout the 3 months. Each month’s activities will not only help them to solve the museum mystery, but teach them about the importance of historic preservation. As Junior Historians, they will learn about conducting oral history interviews, reading historic maps and identifying architectural elements.
