Alabama Constitution Village, a living history museum, marks the site where Alabama became the 22nd state admitted to the Union in 1819. In the spring interpreters quilt and weave baskets, craft furniture, churn butter and make lye soap. In the summer the men and women also weed and hoe the garden and pick vegetables to “put up” preserves. During the colder months they dip candles and prepare the garden for spring.

You’ll love the festival atmosphere at Constitution Village. There will be outdoor concessions, dancing the reel and craft tables for some hands-on fun. Who knows what famous American you might encounter as your class is directed from one craftsman to the next? Perhaps the blacksmith, candle dipper, printer or tinsmith will observe talent in one of your students and request that he/she stay behind as an apprentice!
Length of Course: 2 hours
