Heritage Hill Field Trip Review


Learners experienced history first-hand as they visited four fully restored historic buildings at Heritage Hill. At St. George’s Episcopal Mission, learners had the opportunity to learn about occupations in old El Toro. They also got to touch walnuts, black-eyed peas and apricots. At the El Toro Grammar School, learners experienced the one-room schoolhouse and got to write on slates and read from McRuffy Readers. Some “lucky” learners got to experience first-hand the consequences that children long ago would have received: putting their noses to the blackboard and either holding their leg up or holding their arms straight out while holding books.

 .  . 

At the Bennett House, learners washed laundry the old-fashioned way using a scrub board, a wringer, and hanging their clothes to dry. Finally, they visited the Serrano Adobe House and learned about the secret drawer hidden in dressers and got to grind corn. Overall, a fun time was had by all!
