Another Sherwood History Project


Archer Glen Third Grader answers some last minute history questions from her mom at Morback House. Mrs. Luzaich and her daughter brought along ten different projects from the classrooms of Ms. Walker and Ms. Gunderson.

Each of the student-researchers added a paragraph or two about his/her own role in the historical saga. One student wrote: "My parents bought and built our house in 1996. There were less than 9,000 people here then. Albertsons was brand new and Archer Glen had just opened. The theater, Safeway, the YMCA, the ice arena, and Target were thoughts on paper. During my lifetime all of these places are now realities."

All ten projects are now on display at Morback Museum Wednesdays and Saturdays, 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.

Last November, the Society escorted over 150 Hopkins Third Graders through Old Town. A storm of Fourth Graders from Middleton School swept through the neighborhood in June. Mrs. Luzaich probably spoke for a lot of parents when she said, "It's important for the children to have some reference about where they are."
