Surprise School, MO

Three sessions in August. Surprise, Missouri formed around the nearby Turner's Mill, which milled locally-grown grains (primarily wheat and corn) and operated from the late 19th century to the beginning of the Great Depression. The town was named Surprise because its community members were surprised when their request for a US post office was granted. Tents and small RVs/trailers can be accommodated.

Saguache Ranger Station, CO

HistoriCorps is especially excited to return to the Saguache Ranger Station, as it was the site of our very first preservation project in October 2009! The bunkhouse’s vigas, or log beams, are an interesting and iconic element of southwestern architecture and the focus of our work.

Hornbek Homestead, CO

Adeline Hornbek was one of the early settlers in the West Pikes Peak area having arrived in the mid-1870s with her four children. Defying traditional gender roles of the age, Adeline had by 1885 established a substantial ranch in an area of subsistence farming. We will be building an accessible pathway so all can benefit from this site. Tents and RVs/trailers are welcome.

Only 20 minutes by car or public transit from Washington D.C., and with several incredibly tourist sites within its borders, Bladensburg, MD is a destination city in its own right.
