Visitors read off a script Monday during a walking tour that re-creates the first day in 1957 when the Little Rock Nine attempted to attend classes at Little Rock Central High School.

The famous path Elizabeth Eckford took from the northeast corner of the Little Rock Central High School lawn to the bus bench south of the school 60 years ago became an interactive experience for school visitors on a sweltering Monday afternoon.
