Summer Exhibit closing on September 2
Have you been in to see our summer exhibht, "Over There, Over Here... World War I and Life in New Hampshire Communities?' It is packed with stories about those from Hopkinton who served in the war. It also details what was going on on the home front, including the influenza pandemic and Liberty Bond sales. You won't want to miss it!
The MUSE (MUseums Sharing Experiences) group is currently planning a multi-organization exhibition for 2017, Over There, Over Here: World War I and Life in N.H. Communities. It will feature exhibits, programs, lectures, book readings and activities involving Bradford, Hopkinton, Penacook, New London, Warner and Webster museums, historical societies and libraries as well as the Aviation Museum in Londonderry. Some of the themes the exhibition will cover are temperance, women’s suffrage, the Spanish Influenza epidemic, code talkers, camouflage, communication, art, literature, and the home front.
