CEN­TRE­VILLE — The Queen Anne’s Mu­seum of East­ern Shore Life was open three days dur­ing the re­cent an­nual county fair and had sev­eral hun­dred vis­i­tors stop in to see the an­tique ar­ti­facts and the com­mem­o­ra­tive ex­hibit of World War II which rec­og­nizes and hon­ors those peo­ple from Queen Anne’s County who served in the mil­i­tary dur­ing the war.

The World War II ex­hibit at­tracted a lot of at­ten­tion and many vis­i­tors asked ques­tions and com­pli­mented the staff about the ex­hibit.

The mu­seum will be open as a spe­cial event re­gard­ing Vet­er­ans Day on Sun­day, Nov. 11. Vet­er­ans Day was orig­i­nally called Armistice Day which brought an end to World War I in 1918. This year’s Vet­er­ans Day/Armistice Day marks the 100th an­niver­sary of that peace treaty end­ing that war.

The mu­seum will be open to vis­i­tors again on Satur­day, Sept. 1, from 1 to 4 p.m. There is no ad­mis­sion fee though do­na­tions are al­ways ap­pre­ci­ated.

The mu­seum is lo­cated at the Queen Anne’s County 4-H Park (county fair­grounds) on state Route 18 at Dulin Clark Road between Cen­tre­ville and Queen­stown.
