Educational Programs

Schools and students are invited to experience history at our museum in McMinnville. The Hutchcroft School is a one room schoolhouse from the Yamhill area that was moved to the Heritage Center to show what classes were like during the late 1800s. Each May and October, hundreds of volunteers gather to let students learn first hand what life was like for kids back in the “Pioneer Days”. Our hands-on activities let everyone experience life from 130 years ago.
