A group of elementary school students from Wilmington paid a visit Wednesday to one of Eastern Carolina's most historic tourist attraction.

Around 50 students from New Horizon Elementary in Wilmington toured the historic sites and gardens of Tryon Palace and surrounding historic homes. They said it was a nice break from the classroom and that they were able to see many ways of life that aren't around today.

Officials here hope that the new History Education Center currently under construction will attract more visitors to the site.
