Old house, young historians
June 17, 2021
COLFAX — Thirty-five Colfax kindergarteners descended on Perkins House to learn about history
Five different stations were set inside and outside of the Perkins House to entertain children with the experiences of grinding coffee beans on vintage grinders, slingshots firing ping pong balls, beating rugs with beaters and brooms, and washing clothes in a wash tub.
Teachers Jill Cocking and Andrea Gibb escorted the students from Jennings Elementary School.
Members of the Colfax High School History Club assisted Perkins House volunteers while dressed in vintage costumes.
"Thank you to all...
