Students visit historic homes

From the Bethel Citizen:

Four juniors and two seniors in Dee Johannesen ‘s US History 1 class at Telstar visited Bethel Historical Society’s Mason House (a period home) and The Robinson House (the historical society museum) on Wednesday, January 11. The buildings are side by side on Broad Street.

Johannesen said the first semester of her class starts in the Meso-American time period ending at the Declaration of Independence.  Second semester starts in the post Revolutionary war era.  Said Johannesen before the visit, “I am excited to get the kids in the mindset of the eras, to see what Bethel was like during these time frames, and to help them get interested in history in general.”
