OSWEGO, NY – Granby Elementary School second graders experienced Christmas of yesteryear as they recently toured the Richardson-Bates House Museum in Oswego.

While the students toured the house, they took a step back in time as they learned both Richardson-Bates family and Oswego history.

“They get to see what life was like in the Victorian era,” teacher Thomas Briggs II said.

The visit tied into educational modules about the Civil War and communities.
