In late October, beautiful fall foliage and a crisp breeze welcomed hundreds of homeschool families to the Frontier Culture Museum in Staunton. Parents and students learned about the different countries from which the early settlers came–places such as Ireland, England, Germany, and Africa. Each group brought their own ways of farming and their own customs to America. The museum trip was a great learning adventure to go back in time and see how these early settlers struggled to carve out a life in the Shenandoah Valley.
