A group of 60 students from Grand Forks’ Perley Elementary School enjoyed a fun and educational afternoon at the Greenwood Museum last Monday.  They toured the original jail, located in the basement of the courthouse building, learned about the Phoenix mine, and took part in a scavenger hunt within the museum exhibit rooms.
