Breckinridge Second Graders Tour the Town!

On October 17, second graders from Breckinridge Elementary took a field trip and visited historical sites around Fincastle. Pictured here are some of the students along with Marcia Neighbors (HFI Board member and tour guide) at the James Matten Early Cabin. They were fascinated by the furnishings and period artifacts at the cabin, as well as learning about life long ago. They also toured the Wysong Blacksmith Shop with Susan Martin and the Botetourt Historical Museum with Patty King as guides. Special thanks to the HFI and BCHS volunteers who made history come alive for these youngsters.
