10/11/13 All fourth graders in Indiana study Indiana History. Fourth grade students at Triton Elementary School recently took an educational field trip to “Forks of the Wabash” historic museum park near Huntington. The park features several historic buildings, trails and remnants of the Wabash and Erie Canal. Students visited the home of Chiefs’ LaFontaine and Richardville, and several other historic buildings along the Wabash River. Topics the students were taught include archaeology, canals and transportation, pioneer life, Woodland Indian history, and art.
