About Us


Providing students with high quality learning activities in relevant situations beyond the walls of the classroom is vital for helping students appreciate their first hand experiences from a variety of different perspectives.

Edith Carter started this village with her husband, Hill, in Ferguson, North Carolina to preserve a part of the area’s rich history. Edith, a retired teacher, was driven to educate visitors about the events that have taken place and shaped the Yadkin Valley.

Her legacy continues today. We offer tours and activities that provide those out of classroom learning opportunities for students of all ages. By understanding the past, we are better able to prepare for the future. Please contact us to schedule your visit and learn more about what we can offer. (Ask what we offer for art classes!)
