History jumped off the pages of a textbook and into real life today.

Students from Leon County Schools had a chance to visit the Taylor House to see how folks lived in historic Frenchtown back in the 1890's.

Many students were surprised to see famous faces like Martin Luther King, Muhammad Ali, James Brown and more had visited Tallahassee in modern times when business in Frenchtown was booming.

The visits are part of the Urban League's Blended Lives program for middle schoolers.

Many teens were stunned to discover that folks survived with wells, outhouses, lanterns and wood stoves ... and most grew and preserved their own food.
