Third Grade Student Tours

On Sept 27, 28, 20 and Oct 4th Dorothy Jingst welcomed the third grade classes to the historical museum.   The third grade teachers, Mrs. Terry McWilliams, Mrs. Diane Davis, Mrs. Ruth Nelson, and Mrs. Wendy Buseman encouraged the students to invite a grandparent, parent, or special friend to come along.

Each child and guest used treasure hunt questions to learn more about the museum exhibits.   Many of the children and adults said this was their first trip to the museum and wanted to know when they could come for a longer visit.

Some of their favorite exhibits were the chandelier that hung in the Franklin County courthouse rotunda, the old-fashioned beauty shop, and the kitchen displays dating from 1880 to 1950.
