Where American History Comes to Life 

Take the Journey to Where America Happened™ using our field trip guides as a tool. A 180-mile long, 75-mile wide region extending from Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, to Thomas Jefferson’s home, Monticello in Charlottesville, Virginia, The Journey Through Hallowed Ground National Heritage Area is a magnificent showcase of American history and culture. In addition to its stunning natural beauty, the Journey was an active transportation route during the Revolutionary War, holds more Civil War sites than any other region in the country, and contains the homes of nine US Presidents.

JTHG field trip guides offer great ideas for educational experiences, as well as details and logistics for visits to sites within the Journey. Be sure to contact each site directly when arranging field trips.
