A special Early American History Class (3rd-8th grade) will be held at the Clinton County History Museum on June 29. Students will first tour the 1866 home of Judge Sidney Breese in Carlyle and take a step back in time to see antique toys, school desks, furniture, and kitchen items. They will see military items, uniforms, arrowheads, and 19th-century clothing, including many wedding dresses, everyday dresses, and hats, before making a dream catcher using vintage lace, doilies, and hankies.
