A television crew from the program Antiques Roadshow visited
the Rhea County Courthouse on Friday to record a three-minute segment regarding the 1925 Scopes
Trial. A Scopes Trial-era high school biology textbook, which contained a section on evolution, was
appraised and other books related to the Scopes Trial such as Charles Darwin's "The Origin of the
Species" were discussed.
