Take a Trip Into

the Past

 

New Suncook School, Lovell, grade 4, 2010

 

In rural Maine towns, often many students come from families that have logged the woods for generations. .In Lovell, stuedents heard about one great grandfather who used oxen and handsaws, and  got to see a local horse logger in action. They also heard about area Wabanaki tribes and the legendary Molly Ockett, the Annie Heald School that burnt down in 1986, farm life,  and they performed the great flood of 1953.
