Mrs. Helen Caldwell, age 90, a former student of the one room school, demonstrates the making of a pine straw basket. Mrs. Caldwell's grandfather, Thomas Jefferson Howell gave the land to build the 1902 Semmes School and a church.
It is interesting to note that when the children are told it is time to time travel back to the current school year there are cries of no, I want to stay!
