Over Here: The Great War Comes to Cape May County

April 10th 2017

This year marks the centennial of what was called “the war to end all wars.” While the fighting took place on the battlefields of Europe, here in Cape May County the war created significant change on many fronts. An exhibit commemorating the 100th anniversary of World War I will be on display at The Museum from April 11 through June 6. “Over Here: The Great War Comes to Cape May County” will highlight the trials and tribulations of not only residents who went to war but also those that fortified our shore and kept the home fires burning. This exhibit is being done in three phases. Highlights of the exhibit will be on display in The Museum’s gallery and is free. A more comprehensive exhibit in The Museum’s Military Room located in its historic 1780 barn is part of the paid tour. On Sat. May 20 at 2 p.m. a lecture discussing Cape May’s Camp Wissahickon will take place. The lecture is free and open to the public.
