LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Students at Lufkin ISD's Brandon Elementary learned about history by experiencing it first hand when they put on a Boston Market Thursday morning.

The campus' 5th grade gifted and talented classes put on the Boston Market in the Brandon Elementary cafeteria from 8:15 to 10:30 a.m. Thursday.

The market was complete with students dressed in vintage costumes who used period pieces to depict professions ranging from a candlestick maker to a minister, according to Sheila Adams, a spokeswoman for Lufkin ISD. She said that each student prepared a presentation with a description of their trade and props to display.

During the Boston market, the students also danced the Virginia Reel on the stage.
