Scouts can learn about colonial history locally, earn badges, enjoy campouts — and even undertake community service projects — at the Smith-Appleby House Museum.
Working with scout leaders, Historical Society members create custom programs to meet the needs of scouts of all ages — to provide a real-life, hands-on context to local history.
Here, Girl Scout Troop 373 visited the House to go “off the grid” for fun and a Night Owl badge.
In addition, many of the improvements made at the Smith-Appleby House and on our grounds are the results of scouting service projects undertaken by individual Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, or by entire troops.
Through these projects, Scouts gain valuable hands-on community service experience –while our historic and educational resources, and the enjoyment of our guests, are greatly enhanced.
Gregory Soito, with fellow scouts and friends, built a new garden fence for the Smith-Appleby House as part of his Eagle Scout project in November, 2013.
