The Homefront in Hillsborough: Civil War Living History Event
Bringing History to Life
The Burwell School offers a wide variety of programming that reflects the diversity of its history and celebrates local culture. Free docent-led tours focus on the life of the Burwell School from 1835 - 1857 when it was home to the Burwell family. The Site's Civil War history is actively interpreted through a self-guided tour of the "Beehive" period. The Burwell School offers two tracks of children’s heritage education programs. The tours and educational programs are complimented by a range of special events that fulfill the Historic Hillsborough Commission's mission to "celebrate and promote the heritage and culture of Hillsborough and Orange County."
