Hiwan Museum is closed to the public until further notice due to the COVID-19 outbreak. All programs, meetings, events and tours are cancelled during this time. The outdoor portion of Hiwan Heritage Park (the Grove) remains open, including access to the public restrooms. Visitors are encouraged to spend time outdoors, including hikes around Evergreen, to quench their thirst for local history.
The Evergreen Mountain Area Historical Society offers an authentic experience in a 1920’s one-room schoolhouse at Medlen School on South Turkey Creek Road. Built in 1886, the school has been restored in its original location.
Children who have completed grades 1-5 share in this unique opportunity to:
- EXPERIENCE a typical country school with several grades;
- LEARN “the four R’s” – reading, ‘riting, ‘rithmetic and recitation – just as children of the 1920’s did; and
- PARTICIPATE in the games they played, the songs they sang, and the fun they had!
We are happy to announce the following 2019 dates!
Session I: May 28-30
Session II: June 4-6
Session III: June11-13
Times: 9am – 12pm
