September Field Trip ~

October 6, 2017

During the month of September, Dana Larson’s 8th grade advanced Social Studies class from the Collinsville Middle School visited the historic D.D. Collins House.

 

Thank you for visiting; we are so glad you did!    

 

 

 

   

The Social Studies class learns about the unique details of typical Greek Revival style architecture, popular from 1825-1860.

 The students turn their focus toward the drying shed and the well house as Trisha explains the importance of these outbuildings to life in the mid-1800s.
