Mining the Untold Stories”: Black and Female Voices at Cherry Hill, The Stephen & Harriet Myers Residence, and Schuyler Mansion

Historic Cherry Hill, Schuyler Mansion State Historic Site, and The Stephen & Harriet Myers Residence of the Underground Railroad Education Center have partnered to create thematically linked field trips!

Classrooms can travel to up to 3 historic sites in the city of Albany on the same day, saving schools’ resources and creating rich, collaborative, hands-on educational experiences.

With concrete connections to the New York State curriculum for grades 4, 5, 7, & 8, the programs build a stronger understanding of New York State history and the diverse voices and experiences in our historic communities.

Each program is complemented by pre and post visit materials and additional resources for teachers, available on the New York State Archives Partnership Trust’s Consider the Source NY website.

Cost: $10 per student, funding available for Title 1 Schools.
