Enjoy a fun family experience as Mooresville invites families to participate in an interactive Historic Walking Tour geared for children pre-k to 5th grade. Join Mooresville for this one-of-a-kind event where “junior historians” will explore the breathtaking Town of Mooresville in a walking tour that is fun-filled, intriguing, and educative.
This 1-hour, safe-walking tour around Historic Mooresville begins at the circa 1820s Stagecoach Inn & Tavern with a make-and-take Native American craft and ends at the Dogwood & Magnolia Bakery with a 19th-century old fashion tea cake tasting for the children.
The children will also explore Mooresville’s circa 1839 Brick Church, an original 19th century Outhouse, and an early 1900s “Cook’s Cabin.”
Kids will learn the secrets and stories behind many historic buildings and homes, such as:
- Why is there a hand pointing to Heaven?
- How did Disney film a movie in Historic Mooresville?
- How much was the cost of dinner at the StageCoach Inn & Tavern in 1820?
- How did Lady Woodroof save her home and belongings from Union soldiers?
- Which 2 United States Presidents spent time in Mooresville?
- Which home was designed by the first female architect in Alabama, and much more?
Parents are encouraged to follow along with the tour. Adults will be just as captivated with Mooresville’s stories and legacy as the children.
