Elementary students visit new Santa Elena History Center

Elementary students visit new Santa Elena History CenterIn honor of the 450th commemoration of Santa Elena, downtown school Beaufort Elementary participated in a parade to the Santa Elena History Center on Thursday. The clouds parted and the sun shined brightly as 75 third grade students carried their flag posters down Bay Street.

The students spent time learning about the flags flying in front of the Santa Elena History Center. They also walked through the History Center learning about archaeology, history, art, and of course, the most popular, Spanish Galleon Ship.

The Santa Elena History Center aims to be an exciting field trip destination and educational resource for local and visiting students.
