Oconto and Peshtigo Museums
Had a great field trip today to the Beyer Home in Oconto, followed by a trip to the Peshtigo Fire Museum in Peshtigo.
The Beyer Home was an interesting trip down the history of Wisconsin, and particularly our own area. Most interesting was the reproduction of Main Street in Oconto, complete with the original doors and signs of century-old shops.
The Peshtigo Fire Museum is a quaint museum dedicated to the memory of the deadliest fire in American history (and oddly enough, the same night as the Chicago Fire). We most enjoyed touring the cemetary, where students studied many of the informational signs to prepare their next blog entries.
Keep an eye out at classroomcity.com for a podcast of our field trip, along with the podcast from our Heritage Hill field trip.
