School/Classroom Tour

We believe field trips are an essential part of the educational and cultural enrichment of students of all ages.

A visit to the Bankhead House & Heritage Center makes our past, present and future come alive and we 

want to help enrich a students’ life experience.

  • Guided school tours are provided free of charge.
  • Please schedule school group tours at least two weeks in advance. Often, we will need multiple docents to assist with large school groups; therefore, we would appreciate sufficient notice for your tour. 
  • Due to a grant provided by the Walker Area Community Foundation, the Heritage Center is able to provide funding to local schools (Walker County School System and Jasper City Schools) for transportation costs to allow area students to view our exhibits. Don’t you just love things that enhance school curriculum and that our teachers can use as a learning tool for students at no cost to a school?
