Daly And Sousa Second-Graders Visit The Historical Society

Daly and Sousa Elementary School second-graders recently took a field trip to the Cow Neck Peninsula Historical Society’s “Then and Now” program.

The children learned about everyday life when the Sands family lived at the Sands-Willets House. Students learned how the Sands family cooked on the hearth and in the beehive oven and how they washed clothes with a washboard and mangler.

In addition to the lunch they brought from home, the children enjoyed butter-on-crackers that they made themselves with heavy cream.
