Are you a local educator?

At Moulton Museum, we are all about building connections between the past, present, and future. What better way to pass on the pioneer spirit than to share our rich history with the young pioneers of Orange County?

We are now offering field trips for local schools! If you are a local educator interested in scheduling a tour for your students, please email Jennifer Keil, Museum Director, at to learn more.
