Opening Reception War, Flu, & Fear: World War I and Clay County Tuesday, March 13, 5:00PM-8:00PM Hjemkomst Center $5 Admission (Members Free)
In April 1917, Clay County residents, along with the rest of the country, found themselves thrust into the middle of a brutal world war. The following year brought peace . . . and a global epidemic. In between, Americans in the Red River Valley responded with courage and patriotic fervor, fear and paranoia, political oppression and disillusionment. War, Flu, and Fear tells their stories.
Join us for the opening reception of our newest local exhibition, War, Flu, and Fear: World War I and Clay County. Refreshments, tours, and discussion until we close it down at 8:00PM.
The exhibition will remain on display in Heritage Hall through January of 2020.
