Field Trips & Education


Schedule Spring Field Trips for Your Class

Join us in our beautiful outdoor classroom. Historic Fair Hill provides hundreds of children with direct educational experiences every year. Each of our trips are lead by certified and trained guides.

Philadelphia History Field Trips

Historic Fair Hill is an excellent place to study the Underground Railroad, Abolitionism, Women’s Rights, and Colonial Philadelphia. Some major figures from these eras and movements are buried on our grounds, and in the nearby streets several murals from the Philly Mural Arts Program highlight these important moments in history.

Nature Field Trips

Along with our rich history, Historic Fair Hill is one of the most vibrant natural environments in North Philadelphia. Our five produce gardens and three small orchards in surrounding lots are a great place to learn about urban gardening. We also help children learn to identify over 50 varieties of tree planted on our grounds.
