The 6th grade went to the Stuhr Museum on Monday, May 11. Their tour was “Town Building.” To set the stage for the tour, the guide reviewed about the early plains community development that happened in the 1840’s. From there, the class moved to the 1850’s-60 Log Road Ranche and the establishment of some of the Euro-American settlements on the plains. We then jumped to the development of the Railroad Town in the 1890’s. The students heard and saw the impact that the railroad had in community development. The guide told us about the businesses that survived in a railroad town, as well as exploring the inside of the houses that were a part of the 1890’s railroad town.
