Trek Through Time

The history is rich on Long Valley Farm. From turpentine to tobacco, the history of the Sandhills from the 1800's to modern day is right in front of us, if you know how to look. Students will join a ranger to learn about the conservation and farming techniques used by the first European settlers to the area, and explore houses and farm structures from the early 1900's.
