Scout Badge Programs
The Carlisle Historical Society offers Boy Scout and Girl Scout badge programs. Scouts choose an appropriate badge subject, then work with the Society to establish and fulfill the badge’s requirements. Contact the Society if you are interested in proposing a badge subject, or if you are curious about the possibilities. Two different Eagle Scout projects are listed below, but your badge program is limited only by your imagination!
Ian Wolossow directed the construction of a wooden platform over the opening of an old commercial copper mine located behind Heald House Museum (see photograph). Construction of the platform will allow our visitors to peer safely into the remains of the mine, and it is the first step in the re-construction of the exterior of the mine as it may once have looked. Read about The Copper Mine Project in the Spring 2023 Carlisle Historical Society Newsletter.
David Jiang created an interactive map of fifty historical sites in Carlisle that offers residents and visitors a simple tool for exploring the town’s past, from colonial homesites to foundations of old grist mills, mines, and schoolhouses. The map provides an accessible, visual means to learn about important elements of Carlisle’s past. Explore David’s map on our Research pages.
