Pioneer Winter (Homeschool Program)

  • Manitowoc County Historical Society 924 Pinecrest Road Manitowoc, WI 54220 (map)

Homeschool Days are specially designed field trip days for small educational groups. The benefit is that your visit is self-guided and more flexible than our structured field trip options. You’ll have our interpreters’ attention, PLUS the benefit of your group being able to move around the site at its own pace.

Meet with costumed interpreters and participate in the activities of the day. During the Pioneer Winter program, students will discover how the Ingalls Family braved Wisconsin winters as they travel through our Pioneer Village following Laura’s story in her book, The Long Winter. Wood stoves will warm the Village buildings but visitors are encouraged to dress in winter attire (snowpants, jackets, hats, and mittens).

The program begins at 10 am and activities will take place both inside our historic structures and outside until 1 pm. You may come anytime but we recommend at least 90 minutes to take part in all the activities.

Homeschool program admission is $6 for students age 5 to 17. Children under 5 and homeschool teachers are admitted free.

The Manitowoc County Historical Society is offering an early-bird registration benefit, where visitors save $1 off admission when they register before January 24.
