Preserving and sharing the history of Chatham County North Carolina

2023 Fourth Grade Field Trips  ~  Our Ninth Year!

Here's How You Can Help!

Did you know that all Chatham County Fourth Graders have the opportunity to visit the historic Chatham County Courthouse and Chatham Historical Museum as part of a school field trip? A number of Chatham children have experienced the field trips this fall -- the eighth year that the Chatham County Historical Association has provided the field trips where fourth graders learn about Chatham history, government, and civics. The field trips are staffed by volunteers and each child receives a workbook during the visit that they can take home and share with their parents.

Be a part of this important effort to share Chatham history with the younger generation. Here's how you can help:

•   Make a donation toward the printing of the fieldtrip workbook. Printing is funded entirely by donations. With a minimum $100 donation, donors’ names/businesses/organizations are listed on the back of the workbook to acknowledge their support. Smaller donations are also gratefully accepted! We print the workbooks several times during the year, so it's not too late to be a donor!  Click here to donate via a secure transaction here on our website.  Just indicate in the comment section that you are donating to the 2023 Fourth Grade Field Trips and include how you wish to be acknowledged if donating $100 or more. Or, send a check made out to CCHA Fourth Grade Field Trips and include acknowledgement information. Our mailing address is Chatham County Historical Association, PO Box 93, Pittsboro NC 27312. If you have questions, contact us at

•   Become a field trip volunteer. It takes ten volunteers to host each class visit. We invite you to learn more about the various ways you can participate. Some volunteers participate in every field trip and others commit to occasional participation. Either way, we can use your help and think you will be gratified to have given your time and talents to Chatham’s young people. Contact us at if you have questions or to let us know you're interested.

If you would like to help support the Fourth Grade Field Trips by making a donation toward the workbook printing this year, or if you would like to learn more about volunteering, please contact us soon.  We hope you’ll consider joining our Fourth Grade Field Trip team! It’s a great way to preserve and share Chatham history!
