The trip as I remember it, was the typical roadside-type historic spot. It had a blacksmith, drug store, general store, etc. I remember I bought a horseshoe nail ring which turned my finger dark green!
We all had a blast and the 2 pictures included here are when we posed in the stocks. It capped the end of a very memorable year that started out normal - but the death of JFK in November, 1963 and the arrival of the Beatles in February, 1964 changed all that.
Remember the white field trip permission slips? I couldn't wait to get mine signed - we went on some really fun trips over the years.
Above is Beth Perdue - Beth was in Miss Trantum's class (married and became Mrs. Jones). I remember wishing Beth was in our class!
Here are the letters of thanks (Beth Perdue's even has a self-portrait!):
Katie wrote 2 pages! The coaches Katie writes about were the wagons that were out front.
Beth Daly wishes she was in our group!
