Fourth grade students at Smithtown Elementary took a trip back to the colonial era on Wednesday.

The students traveled down East Main Street to the Smithtown Historical Society’s Epenetus Smith Tavern to experience life in the late 1700s.

After learning the history of the tavern, which quartered British troops during the American Revolution, the fourth graders experienced hands-on activities including writing with a quill, dipping candles in wax and leather working.
