Joel Lane Museum House’s Booth at Scout Jamboree

Staff and volunteers from Joel Lane Museum House manned a booth at the Scout Jamboree at the NC State Fairgrounds in Raleigh on Saturday, April 24. They met many excited Scouts and Scoutmasters who were very interested in learning about the early history of Raleigh and Wake County. Scouts were invited to come to the site for a tour and hands-on history experience designed to showcase the colonial era in an age-appropirate way. Many thanks to eveyone who helped to make the day possible and to the Scout leaders who invited us to attend!

What visitors say

Thank you for the excellent tour of the Joel Lane House.  I learned a lot about the history of Raleigh as well as the Joel Lane House.  I learned how harsh conditions were back then and how we take for granted things they did not have back then.  The structure of houses has really changed a lot since the Joel Lane House was built.
