- South Elementary fourth graders local history trip
- Posted May 7, 2012 midnight
- Students at Wallenpaupack South Elementary in Newfoundland walked across the street on Thursday, April 19th, and moved 200 years into the past. A local history field trip sponsored by the Greene Dreher Historical Society, provided students with four stations to learn how children in the 1800ís lived and how the area was settled. Beginning with an overview of the early settlers to the area, students learned about industry of the area, and home and school life. They also visited a cemetery used by the early settlers and searched for names of those who settled the area. A presentation of the flood of 1955 provided history of a very serious event occurring in the area over 50 years ago.
