Field Trips: The Lott House
Two years ago Ms. Stewart and Ms. Harmatz's classes went to view the Wyckoff House in East Fklatbush, Brooklyn. The model of the house that Ms. Stewart's class did with Mr. Stern's help was a major highlight of that year's learning fair. Another historic house worth looking at for its interior is the Lott House in Marine Park, Brooklyn. Currently they are not arranging class visitations but there is a website dedicated to the recent archaelogical excavations going on there. The Historic House Site for Lott has nothing. This is a sample of the wonderful things you can find at the site, an oral history from a direct descendant of the original owners.
