Teachers Open House
Each fall and spring the education department at the Old North Foundation sponsors a Teachers Open House to reach out to area teachers and introduce them to our history, our work, and learning opportunities for students and teachers of all grade levels.
The Open House features a special tour of the Old North highlighting new research into the landmark’s history, an overview of programs offered for students and teachers, and an opportunity for questions and discussion. Light refreshments will be served.
Our 2015 Open House dates have not been scheduled yet. Please check back!
