HC News G&K Banner

As the 100th anniversary of the United States’ entry into World War I approaches, the Red Mill Museum Village will examine ways in which the war affected the lives of those at home in New Jersey. A special exhibit will open to the public this spring, and the Museum needs your help in gathering artifacts. Items especially pertaining to women and industry are sought; however other items relating to American involvement in the war effort are also welcome. If you are interested in loaning an item you may send a photograph and/or description to Elizabeth Cole, Curator of Collections, at the Museum at ecole@theredmill.org. To be featured in the exhibit are objects from the Museum’s collection including a group of Liberty Loan posters donated by the late Helen Tomson of Clinton, whose father was Chester Tomson, owner of the Red Mill at the time of the war. The Red Mill Museum Village has been preserving and interpreting the history of Hunterdon County and its surrounding area for over 50 years. A national historic site, the Red Mill and the encompassing Mulligan Quarry are located along the South Branch of the Raritan River in Clinton, New Jersey. Our programs, special events and exhibits seek to inspire the public and enhance knowledge of our cultural heritage. . # # # If you would like more information about this topic, please contact Elizabeth Cole at 908-735-4101 x103 or email at ecole@theredmill.org
