28th Annual Heritage Days
Heritage Days celebrates the beginning of autumn with living history presentations, skilled artisans, farm animals, live music, and much, much more. The event is held from 9 am until 1 pm on September 25 and September 26, 2014. Admission to all activities, including the museum and limited house tour, are offered to students and the general public at $5 per person. Reservations are recommended for groups of 10 or more. Heritage Days is a weather-dependent event.
Ghost Tours - Oct. 17, 18, 24, & 25
Ghost Tours offers an answer to the commonly asked question: Is the Sam Davis Home haunted? This storytelling event gives visitors a chance to hear a different tour of the historic house and property. Visitors first board a haunted hayride and hear tales of the property as well as the custom of mourning facts before being dropped off at the front walk of the historic Sam Davis Home. Storytellers inside the house and outbuildings will share the hauntingly true tales experienced by visitors, staff, and volunteers as guests are guided along the walking tour. The event begins at 7 p.m. with ghost tours departing every fifteen minutes until 10 p.m. Admission is $5 per child age 12 and under and $10 per adult.
Holiday Craft Boutique
Are you a vendor looking to sell your hand crafted products in the Smyrna area before Christmas? Join us for our first ever Holiday Craft Boutique at the Sam Davis Home! The event is in conjunction with our annual Victorian Christmas event and takes place on December 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you are interested in being a vendor, please contact us at email@example.com for the application and more information.
Fall Field Trip Opportunities
We have two great field trip opportunities coming up! Hallowed Harvest takes place during the month of October and involves a hayride, visit to our pumpkin patch, and a telling of the legend of Sleepy Hollow in addition to the house and grounds tour.
During the month of December, enjoy a tour of the house and grounds while it is decorated for a Victorian Christmas. In addition, students can take part in our "What! No Batteries?" program as well as well as make a special holiday craft.
Both field trips are $5 per student. Contact Alex Collins at 615-459-2341 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to make a reservation.
