Elementary Grade Tours

The Education Committee of the Historical Society of Carroll County has developed interactive lessons to support the Maryland State Standards. The lessons highlight what life was like 200 years ago and provide experiential opportunities in the Sherman-Fisher-Shellman House. Students will have the opportunity to see authentic Carroll County artifacts and participate in activities that illustrate how people, places and events have changed the County’s history over time.
