The Painted Stone Settlers played host to over 600 school children on Friday September 12, 2008. The schools ranged from local Shelby County Schools to Jefferson, Henry, and Oldham Counties along with parochial, private and homeschoolers. The children were given a high school guide with a layout and schedule for the day. There were 20 stations with demonstrators of flax breaking, spinning, weaving, broom making, storytelling, firestarting, firearms of the 18th century along with horses, goats, musicians and even an 18th century magician.
Stations were divided according to the curriculum of the class with each class visiting approximately 12 stations. At 11:00 all classes met at the bleachers for a cannon demonstration and mini battle re-enactment. Many schools brought lunch and picnicked on the grounds.
