The sites visited in each of the courses in the series, Our National Treasures, present inquisitive participants with many facets of our cultural heritage. The course experience itself is an exploratory process that is as much to be valued as the sites themselves. As a curious lifelong learner one must perform research in order to discover answers that lead to more questions and more research. Thus in this course, the participant prepares for the site visit by conducting investigations to gain a better appreciation of the knowledge and inspiration that the national treasure will offer. At the locale itself, questions are posed that further one’s desire to engage in additional study. Therefore touring the site and becoming engrossed in the process becomes the true national treasure.
