Buy Tickets

“Blackout Poetry” is a much older activity than you may believe – dating back into the 1700s! Be inspired by the preserved-as-found Aiken-Rhett House Museum in this fun and engaging morning program courtesy of the Community Collection from our friends at CCPL. Create poetry by “blacking out” certain passages and words as house educators will discuss education for children in the early 19th century as well as historical literacy – who could read and write, and who could not during the residences of the Aiken and Rhett families.  Children must be accompanied by an adult. House Museum is not handicap accessible.

All materials will be provided for this program. Each child must be accompanied by at least one adult. Recommended for ages 9 through 15. (Yes, each participating child needs an adult.) Each adult also requires admission. ($5/each. $10 per child/parent pair.) This program is provided in partnership with the Community Collection from our friends at CCPL.
