On May 13, West Forest students in grades 3 – 6 visited Pithole Historic Site.

The students visited the museum and walked the grounds. Pithole was originally a Boom Town when oil was first found in the nearby town of Titusville. It quickly became a ghost town, leaving nothing but rolling grassy hills. In the 1950s the area was then made to be what it is today, a historical region and museum.

The students also visited the Woodmobile and learned about the forest industry.
