Pendleton Historic Foundation

Pendleton Historic Foundation operates Woodburn, one of the largest Upcountry plantation homes, as a historical museum. A visit to Woodburn is filled with age-appropriate games and activities for students to complete in conjunction with their field trip. Students will participate in activities such as touring the houses, having lessons in an 1830s classroom, spinning and weaving a wall hanging, playing 19th-century parlor games, writing with quill and ink; and learning about Native American trade practices, the herb garden and sachet-making, chickens on the plantation, and differences between life today and in the 1800s.
