(January 18)—Come visit the Richfield History Center January 18 and see “Minnesota Homefront, World War II,” a traveling exhibit that explores the accomplishments, sacrifices, disappointments and challenges that have shaped the enduring legacy of Minnesota’s Greatest Generation through their stories. In “Minnesota Homefront, World War II,” visitors find out what it was like to “make do” with rationing, farm during a severe labor shortage, work on the Iron Range, develop inventions for the war, be trained as a translator at Fort Snelling and endure a starvation experiment for science and the war effort.
The exhibit features nine graphic panels, audio interviews, songs of the period, and a “Letter Stories” bin.
This exhibit is on temporary loan from the Minnesota History Center in St. Paul and will be traveling to venues throughout Minnesota.
The exhibit leaves the Richfield Historical Society after we close on Saturday, March 15th.
