Fort Dobbs State Historic Site announces a series of new “virtual” field trips. 

As most schools cannot visit in person this fall, the site is able to bring the fort into classrooms digitally. Once a $15 ticket is purchased, educators will have open access to a dozen educational videos created just for students. The videos explore the history of the site and life in the North Carolina backcountry during the French and Indian War.

Educators may contact Site Manager Scott Douglas via email at scott.douglas@ncdcr.gov for ticketing information.
