Saturday Tours

We offer a tour of our village on the first and third Saturdays of the month, April through October. The tour begins at 1:00 pm and generally lasts one and a half to two hours.  We have a limit to our tour group size, so YOU NEED TO MAKE A RESERVATION for our regularly scheduled tours.  Please email us, and we will sign you up and send you directions.

Currently we offer tours free of charge. However, we gladly accept donations to help us continue our educational mission!

Tours involve a fair amount of walking, so wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather. You might want to bring a water bottle and sun protection in the summer months.

Once a year, in autumn, we also offer an Open House where we offer extended tours of the village throughout the afternoon. Check out our Open House webpage for the date and more information. Due to Covid, we have unfortunately canceled our 2021 Open House, but check back in the winter for information on a 2022 Open House.

Special Tours & Group Tours

We strongly encourage you to come to our regularly scheduled tour. However, if that doesn’t seem possible, please email us to schedule an alternate tour. We need at least two weeks notice. We do not offer tours on a drop-in basis. We also offer tours to groups. With enough notice, these tours can be tailored to specific educational topics or interests. Please email us in advance to schedule a group tour. We need at least two weeks notice. When tours are specially scheduled, we ask that you pay:

  • Local Residents (Scotland & Knox County) — free
  • Groups of 1 – 5 people — $25 per group
  • Groups of 6 or more people — $5 per person
