Home and Abroad: Americans in World War I

Visit the new Local History exhibit and explore the American experience in Europe. Now open!

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. In late October the second part of the exhibit, "Over Here", will focus on the American experience at home.
