Resources for Teachers

The DeKalb History Center recognizes the importance of incorporating local and state history into the classroom curriculum and is proud to support teachers in this endeavor. We offer school field trips throughout the year. Our Archives are also a great resource for teachers looking for primary documents or historic photos and maps to enrich their lessons. If you have any questions about these or other resources offered by the DeKalb History Center please contact our Coordinator of Programs at or 404-373-1088 x 20.
