Rowayton School-children visit the RHS

Rowayton School-children visit the RHS

The sun finally broke through the clouds this week as the RHS welcomed Rowayton School students to Pinkney Park for a long-awaited field trip to tour the RHS campus. We customized their tour to accommodate the school curriculum…Colonial history in Norwalk for the 5th graders, Native American life for the 3rd grade. RHS board members and docents Page Morrison, Lynn Maginnis, and Suzie Aubrey brought history home as they shared stories of early Native American life, of British ships storming the shores of Norwalk during the Revolution, about Colonial cooking and bathing, and oysters the size of dinner plates which fed Indians and settlers alike.   Highlights included seeing Revolutionary War cannon balls and Native American artifacts found locally.
