Please join us for our annual Easter Eggstravaganza event! We're extending the event this year to take place from 10 am to 2 pm. As always, kids age 0-10 will be able to participate in an Easter egg hunt, and kids and adults of all ages can participate in the crafts and demonstrations that will take place throughout the backyard. Three egg hunts will take place. The first for kids 0-3 at 11 am, the second for kids 4-6 at noon, and the third for kids 7-10 at 1 pm. The Easter Bunny will also be on site for photos with a donation to SDH. The event is weather permitting. The cost is $2 per person. Historic House tours will not be conducted during the event. Tours will resume at 2:00 pm.

SDH summer camps are packed with fun activities that inspire and encourage a love of history. Campers become acquainted with 19th century life for young girls and boys in our Jane Davis Academy through crafts and games. Through drills, campfire cooking, and spy games, campers get to know the experience of Civil War soldiers in School of the Soldier. Finally, campers discover what plants and creatures live at the Sam Davis Home at The Science of History camp. We have 168 acres to explore!
