Exhibit Open: July 6 – September 30
When faced with war, pandemics, depression and oppression, the homefront has been the foundation of resilience, the place we find comfort and strength to survive and thrive. Ration books, flour sack quilts, Depression-era recipes, homemade facemasks: artifacts of then and now tell remarkably similar stories of struggle, disparity and survival. Starting on July 6, we invite you inside our reopened historic buildings to tour this special collection and share your own stories. Keepsake Resilience on the Homefront booklets are also available for purchase ($10).
We are very excited to welcome guests inside our historic buildings again! Here’s how you can tour our site safely:
