Rural Hill is a Historic Site, Nature Preserve, Field Trip Destination, Cultural Events Site, Farm, and all around great place to get away from one’s daily stresses in life. Bring your students to experience excellence during our fascinating and unique educational programs focusing on history, science, creative thinking, reading, and even math! Stop by and enjoy the solitude of nature that only 265 secluded acres can provide while hiking our extensive network of trails. Visit us and feel the rush of communal excitement with several thousand new friends at one of our cultural events. Step back in time as you step through our cabin’s doorway, smelling the delicious smells of food cooking over an open hearth. Hear the ringing of the blacksmith’s hammer, the chop of the woodworker’s adze, and the blast of the militiaman’s musket. We have over 250 years of history and heritage to share with you, your family, and your students. Whatever your interest, Rural Hill has something for you!!
Let Rural Hill provide you with the best field trip options available! Currently serving the greater Charlotte community and its surrounding schools, we continue to enjoy a greater recognition for our educational services. Our educational programs are experience based and focus not just on history, but also on nature, science, writing, creative thinking, and even math skills! Each program is heavily dependent on student participation and plenty of questions are asked of them. Believing that to truly learn one must fully experience the lesson at hand, student’s are allowed to smell, feel, hear, and sometimes (in regards to our heritage breed farm animals) even feed the history that they are learning about!Remember to plan time for free play, the nature trail, or a hay ride! With 265 acres of historic farm and forest land, there’s always something to do and see!
