Students of all ages are invited to experience eighteenth-century colonial lifestyles and history. Students will explore the lavish public rooms and comfortable family quarters while hearing about the Wilton’s famous visitors, including Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and the Marquis de Lafayette. Students will tour the mansion on a ‘scavenger hunt’ for animals, insects, shapes, colors and patterns. After the tour, students jump into the fashion of the day by participating in a colonial clothing demonstration.
