Approximately 350 fifth grade students and teachers from schools in southeast Nebraska and Lincoln descended upon the Table Rock community Friday morning September 8 to participate in the 19th annual Living History Day.

The event featured nine stations where the students divided into groups and toured the different sites of historical significance within the Table Rock community. Guest speakers included Roy Mullin who operated the steam engine. Gleoria Covault shared stories about attending country school. Howard Blecha and Joe Stehlik were tour guides through the Veterans Building as well as the facility, which displays the historical heritage of the Stehlik family. Professor Farquar had fun sharing stories, card tricks and ball throwing tricks with the students throughout the day.
