Field Trip: GSCM

Photo by Museum Director David Rice
Thank you to Mr. David Rice, Director of the Georgetown & Scott County Museum (GSCM), for welcoming us to their space last week. Students in the FDN 112 "Engaging Objects" course had the opportunity to learn about the museum and to explore the collections on their own. Some photographs of our time there and our "favorites" are below, including Pete the Crow!

Director of the Georgetown & Scott County Museum,
Mr. David Rice, welcomed our group.

Students explored the museum and examined Scott County's past.
What kinds of objects are on view?
How does this collection differ from ours on campus?

Behold—Pete the Crow (caption below)

Alex located this painting of tobacco's agricultural industry—tobacco!
Scott County resident
Richard Mentor Johnson was the ninth VP of the US who
also served in the administration of Martin Van Buren.

Out of the battle of the River Raisin, came one of the great American rallying cries of the
War of 1812, "Remember the Raisin!" — as in, the Raisin River!

Yep, that's for sure! We were engaged with our objects:)
