CONVERSATIONS ABOUT THE PAST
Levi Jordan Plantation
The students in Donna Gregurek's 8th grade Computer Literacy classes in Sweeny, Texas (four miles from the Jordan Plantation) will, someday, help us to create this page so stay tuned for their version of what a 'kids' page about the Jordan Plantation should look like! We hope to have this done by 2001.
If you have a suggestion about what they should do with this page, please send a feedback form to tell us about it!
