What could be more fun than reading some wonderful children's books from one of the many porches at Varner-Hogg? Join us on Facebook Live on the 1st and 15th of each month for our virtual story time as we read books inspired by the real stories of our site. (We might even pop-up at some other fun places outside the plantation!)

Our story times cannot be recorded and saved, so be sure to join us live. Front Porch Stories programs are intended for early readers. They are free and open to the public.

In March, we're reading...
