March 8, 2017 tours Comments Off on Volunteers Needed for Second-Grade Class Visits This Spring

This spring, the Historical Society of Haddonfield will once again be hosting visits from elementary school students as part of the school curriculum on local history.

We’re anticipating leading tours for ten classes of second-graders, and we’d love your help either as a lead docent or a helper.

Volunteers should be willing to commit to helping with at least two tours of Greenfield Hall in late April and May. The tours will be held from 9:30-11:30 am during the week, and are currently being scheduled with teachers. All volunteer docents are also required to attend a training session at Greenfield Hall on Thursday March 23 from 1-2:30 pm. If you’d like to volunteer but cannot attend training on the 23rd, please let us know.

If you’re interested, please RSVP to Marsha Marshall at info@haddonfieldhistory.org. Thank you, and if you have any questions, please contact us at info@haddonfieldhistory.org or 856-429-7375.

3rd Graders Tour Greenfield Hall

July 10, 2015 tours Comments Off on 3rd Graders Tour Greenfield Hall

Kathy leading tourWe had a wonderfully successful school season with over 200 3rd grade children from four local schools tour Greenfield Hall and learn about Haddonfield and the origins of the town. The children made their own butter, which they ate with cornbread. The kids really enjoyed the third floor nursery and play area where they learned about toys from the 18th and 19th century. They toured our tool museum in the basement and saw how early Haddonfield residents plowed their field and built their houses.

On June 10th the Haddonfield Memorial High School Art/Pottery class came to see our historical pottery collection with emphasis on the Haddonfield pottery made in Haddonfield in the 19th and early 20th century.
