I recently discovered Heritage Letter and was so intrigued by the concept that I thought you’d like to hear about it! After receiving several Heritage Letters in the mail for my daughter, I was able to chat with Julie about her subscription business and how homeschoolers can benefit from it.

About Heritage Letter
Heritage Letter is a monthly letter subscription that delivers a letter from someone significant to the story of America’s past right to your mailbox each month.
The Heritage Letter was born of a love of American history and a desire to share it with others in a unique way. We desire to build a community of history enthusiasts, teachers, and parents who love to share our rich history with children. We aim to create a special experience for our subscribers to grow their knowledge of American history on a monthly basis.
In addition to the letter you’ll be able to find a blog post on our website with lesson plan ideas containing book recommendations, games, arts and crafts. You’ll also find field trip ideas broken down by preschool through high school age groups.
