Yancey County School Field Trips

Special thanks to The Yancey Fund and The Community Foundation of Western North Carolina for granting $7,722 to help fund Pioneer for a Day, a field trip program in partnership with Yancey County Public Schools. 

These funds and gifts from other major donors allow The Center to host hundreds of children as they learn about the settling of this area. Students get a detailed understanding of the early American lifestyle by experiencing it through a series of hands-on activities.

In coordination with our county guidelines, the Shoal Creek Guest House is temporarily closed. Please check back or send us an email with your questions.
