The 5th Graders enjoyed a field trip on March 19th to Mission San Luis in Tallahassee. Mission San Luis de Apalachee is a beautiful 60 acre archaelogical park. The site of a 17th Century Spanish mission, San Luis contains archaeological evidence of a Spanish fort, church and residences, as well as an Apalachee council house and Indian Village. Interpretive displays and programs bring these early settlers to life.
Once a month, a living history program focuses on Spanish life at the mission in the 1680’s. Archaeologist work in the lab and field at San Luis year around, and answer questions about their discoveries.
