Local elementary students tour the Log Cabin Village

Posted:

Students from Blessed Sacrament stepped out of the classroom and into the 19th century Friday.

Kindergarten through 4th grade students visited the Log Cabin Village on Quinsippi Island to see what life was like 200 years ago.

They learned how people preserved food, washed clothes, heated their homes all before electricity.

Organizers with the Friends of the Log Cabin say this is a great way to keep history alive for the younger generations.

"I think they need to get an appreciation of history and that's one of the reasons why we want to save this village and restore the structures to what they once were so that we actually have more sites that they could visit," said John Gerhardt, Friends of the Log Cabins.

Nearly 100 students took part in Friday's log cabin tours.
