  • Taking Tea (Spring)

    Through hands-on experiences at Rose Hill Mansion and the Seneca Falls Historical Society Museum, students on the Taking Tea school field trip explore changes in cooking technology, women’s work, and the custom of "taking tea" between 1850 and 1890.
  • Tales of Christmas Past

    All classes will view the Prouty-Chew period rooms, which will be decorated for Christmas. Students will find out how the Prouty family celebrated Christmas in the late 1800s and see the kinds of toys the children received. Available for grades 1 to 3.
  • Cemetery Stories

    The Cemetery Stories field trip helps students discover what cemeteries can tell us about the Geneva community and the people who have shaped it. Students in grades 2 and 5 will examine cemetery art and find out what it reveals about the people of the past and use critical thinking skills to discover how some of Geneva’s early residents lived, died and remembered one another.
