World War II exhibit continues at museum
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.
