ELLSWORTH, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The city of Ellsworth is getting ready to celebrate it's 250th year this summer, but students at the Ellsworth Middle School decided to get a head start on Friday.
Student's from 5th to 8th grade have been researching the city for months as part of an assignment they were given in honor of the sestercentennial. They discovered everything from what buildings were first built there during it's earliest years, to how it got it's name. They compiled all their findings into several different presentations that they made during school today. It wasn't just about putting their knowledge to paper though, many of them also wore their best colonial outfits for the occasion, which was a hit with several of the middle schoolers.
