On this day in history...
November 2, 1889—the day North and South Dakota were admitted to the union as the 39th and 40th states. Students will look at the process and politics of how new states are added to the country and get the chance to create their own state.
Homeschool students are invited to participate in Historic Columbia’s Homeschool Friday programs on the first Friday of each month. Each month’s program is from 10 - 11:30 a.m. and includes hands-on activities while students learn and explore different themes and historic sites with Historic Columbia. Homeschool Friday programs are designed for students of elementary and middle school age levels. This program is open to families and homeschool groups of less than 10 students. For larger groups, we recommend arranging a separate visit to explore that month's topic. Each program begins at the Gift Shop at Robert Mills, located at 1616 Blanding Street, unless otherwise noted.
