Book Your Second Grade Field Trip Soon!

Calling Henderson second and third grade teachers... and home schoolers!! Are you looking for an end of the school year field trip? The Depot Community Room may be able to help!! We offer a free "Rails and Trails" field trip designed to teach those age groups about their community. Students will learn the history and function of civic organizations and buildings, like the Henderson County Courthouse and Henderson Municipal Center, Henderson County Public Library, and Henderson-Henderson County Chamber of Commerce. They'll also hear highlights of Henderson's past at the Depot, and learn more about the famous artist, John James Audubon!!
The tour usually lasts approximately 1-1 1/2 hours. 
We are able to provide this FREE service to local school children thanks to the support of the City of Henderson, Henderson County Tourist Commission and the help of our volunteers!
Call us at 830-9707 or email tamara@hendersonky.org or leighann@hendersonky.org for more information or to book your date!! Since our field trips are staffed by volunteers, the earlier we can begin making arrangements to host your class the better!!
