Exhibit Open: July 6 – September 30

Take a self-guided tour through the exhibit we have spread throughout the Village. Resilience on the Homefrontbrings together artifacts and stories from historic and COVID experiences as a way of exploring how we’re able to not just survive but thrive in difficult times. From ration books to flour sack quilts and homemade facemasks these artifacts tell remarkably similar stories of struggle, disparity and survival. Purchase a keepsake Resilience on the Homefront booklet for $10 to record your own stories of resilience for generations to come.

Only one family or group is admitted in each 15-minute time slot to create plenty of distance throughout the Village.
