Living Lesson In History At Pioneer Days in Troy
By Sarah Cantey


 More than 1,000 students spent a day living the past. 

 
It's part of the annual fall festival at the pioneer museum of Alabama. Students from Montgomery, Selma and across Southeast Alabama were in Troy for Pioneer Days. The museum has live re-enactments and demonstrations Friday and Saturday. 
 
On Saturday there will be live music and their first Barn Dance at Night. 
 
It is a way for students and visitors to get a sense for the 18th and 19th century, up close and personal. 
 
Logan Johnson & Clay Barron, Goshen High School students said, "It's a great way to learn about history and come out here and explore and be kids."
 
Directors hope to one day be a full-time "living history" museum.
