During Granger Elementary School’s Wax Museum May 13, the gym was transformed into Granger Township of the 1800s. Students discussed township schools, businesses and life during that time.

They also talked about prominent people of the area and were dressed in 1800s clothing.

Principal Linda Collins and her cousin, Bobbie Broa, demonstrated broom making, which has been a family craft for 100 years.
