You can step back into history by taking an Emancipation Journey. Enjoy an encounter with the Embree House Historic Farm during which you will relive its rich history. Your personally guided tour will bring the past to the present revealing why the rich farmland has become sacred ground.
You will journey with the indians who first roamed this land through the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, and learn how the Kykers and current proprieters have contributed to the recent history. Our hope is you will be touched spiritually and patriotically as you continue your Emancipation Journey.
