ELKINS - Highland Adventist School students enjoyed their first field trip of the school year when they recently visited the Beverly Heritage Center.
The museum's costumed docents taught the group about the American Civil War, about games and activities for children in years gone by, and what life was like in general for people living in the late 1800s.
The students also enjoyed learning about the history of Randolph County including stories about the conflict over whether Beverly or Elkins would be the Randolph county seat.
