Home and Abroad: Americans in World War I

Visit the current Local History exhibit before it closes on October 21st and explore the American war experience in Europe.

This year Local History is hosting two different traveling World War I exhibits from the National Archives. Beginning on June 16th, “Over There” gives visitors an opportunity to explore the American experience in Europe. Numerous photographs, as well as select World War I artifacts, are featured in the display. For a community perspective, Local History has created materials describing Oak Lawn’s contributions to the war effort. On October 27th the second part of the exhibit, "Over Here", will focus on the American war experience at home.
