GROTON —On June 4 and 5, the third-graders from Florence Roche and Swallow Union schools visited the Williams Barn for a program developed by the Groton Woman's Club several year ago, depicting how children lived in the 1800s.
The children made butter, played music, quilted, and played with toys and games. They saw a timber framer and a cooper at work. Leo (Williams) Wyatt gave his family's history.
The children also visited the Sawtell School, a one-room schoolhouse on Chicopee Row.
