A group of students stands in front of Walnut Grove Plantation.

Polk County Middle School eighth grade students visited Walnut Grove Plantation in Spartanburg, S.C. Nov. 6 and Nov. 7 as part of their study of colonial America.

Students learned what it took to survive in the colonial back country of the Carolinas prior to the American Revolution.

After touring the 18th-century manor house and several out buildings, students also visited the Moore family cemetery, constructed lean-to shelters out of natural materials, and learned about the clothing and ways of life of colonists.
