The 4th Grade class visited Magnolia Plantation on Friday. Magnolia Plantation is listed on the Natural Register of Historic Places and played important roles in the colonial settlement, the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. The glorious day was full of sunshine and fun as our students took the Nature Train and Slavery to Freedom Tour. Upon arrival, students were greeted by beautiful peacocks and able to witness God's abundant beauty as they saw nature in its rarest form. During the four-mile nature train ride, students saw alligators, herons, turtles and egret. It was a special treat to have Pastor Dick as our tour guide as he continued to bring all things back to our Creator, Jesús Christ. The students also learned about the history of the plantation and were able to tour slave cabins that were occupied until the last decade.
