Bring Your Elementary School Class to 2024 Student Days

Welcome to the living history of Cushetunk, the first permanent European settlement in the Upper Delaware River Valley, established by Connecticut pioneers in the 1750s. Experience life on the colonial frontier from the 1750s through the 1780s. Learn about the Indigenous People and their interaction with the European settlers, visit with a working blacksmith, explore frontier cabins, learn from candle makers, spinners and weavers, and about 18th century medicine. And discover the important role the environment…the river, the forests, the soil…played in the life of these early settlers. Experience American History through the eyes of those who lived it, and you will want to return again and again!
