DHPT has been fortunate to have a partner in Roger Williams University’s Community Partnerships Center. So far, we have worked with the university’s education department’s social studies class for training elementary education teachers.
DHPT’s plans for the property will result in a potential tourist destination where visitors to the Elihu Akin House Cultural Heritage Center will be given a multifaceted experience. Here’s a look at some of the exciting new exhibits and programming proposed for the new facility:
The Akin House along with the proposed adjacent visitor center will become one of Dartmouth’s main attractions for teaching and learning. The property will serve as a venue for the DHPT and other groups, such as the Dartmouth Historical and Arts Society to offer innovative ways to teach local history with hands-on workshops and other programming to provide a living history experience.
