One of the subjects some of students were learning about was – “What is an artifact?”  To help demonstrate what an “artifact” is the library table was laid out with several different objects.  This provided a means for students to have a closer look and have an on hands experience.  There was a great amount of student interest and discussion about each.  


The students were separated and one group beginning the tour from the

Garret and the other at the Front Parlor
