Education at the Cannonball House

Mind Your Ps & Qs

Miss Elizabeth’s Academy was a huge success at the Cannonball House this summer. Over a dozen girls learned the ins and outs of setting a formal table, proper introductions, grooming tips, and posture. This was such a popular class, GPB, The Telegraph, and 13WMAZ spent the entire day covering the event!

Father/Daughter Dance

There is nothing more special than a father taking time to celebrate his daughter! This past February, over a dozen fathers did just that! The dynamic duos enjoyed light refreshments, a promenade debut of the daughters, 19th century dances, as well as the language of using a “fan.”

Mother/Son Dance

At the end of August, we celebrated another exciting new tradition at the House—a mother-son dance! As with the girls, these young gentlemen  enjoyed light refreshments, 19th century dances, and a short introduction to manners for young.

The Great Depression

Our education coordinator, Brenda Dobson, did a fantastic job this past school year teaching the Depression Era to area home school children.

Everything from the music to movies, food to lifestyle, children of all ages learned just how difficult life was for people living through that era.
Middle Georgia State University education majors also attended a special class on how to teach the Depression Era!

In 2016—Our education department will focus on the Civil War Era.
