Log Cabin School


Join Montpelier Archaeology and historic restoration professionals in recreating a 19th century log cabin in the field slave quarters. Participants will spend a week learning authentic wood working and joinery techniques that were used in Madison's era.

This program will take place from February 15-21, 2015. During the program, participants can stay in the antebellum plantation home, "Arlington House," or for those wanting private rooms, there are other housing options around Montpelier, including lovely, local B&Bs.
