I just did a newspaper story on Bluffton’s Allen and Diane Yoder. Each year for the past nine years, they have gone on “Road Scholar” learning vacations. The tour guides are local historians, college professors, and such. The Yoders just returned from Natchez, Mississippi, where they learned about various aspects of slavery, about trade on the Mississippi River, about antebellum-era mansions… The Yoders consider themselves “life-long learners” and really enjoy these adventures. In our travels, we came across Wilcox, Arizona (pop. 3,501). The town has a historical society, offers regular “learning tours” through the town, and have, basically (and with some creative tourism smarts to boot), turned Wilcox into a tourist destination.
