Ever long to return to the days of Rhett and Scarlett? Girls ages 12 and up can do just that during the Antebellum Academy, presented by Oaklands Historic House Museum from June 23-27, 2014.
Surrounded by the 1860's furnishings of the Oaklands mansion, students will be introduced to crafts, music, and history, while being instructed in nineteenth century manners, museum etiquette, tasks and skills expected of young ladies of the period.
"We are honored to give young ladies the experience of hands-on activities that have been passed down from one generation to another," said Mary Beth Nevills, Educational Director.
