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 touring us around the Joel Lane House. Our architecture and the way we live has come a long way throughout the years. You really gave us great information on what life was like back when Joel Lane was alive. They lived in very harsh conditions with no heat or air condition which would be very tough today. I appreciate all your help and time put in to tour us around the house.
