The impending 100th anniversary of Armistice Day brings with it the closing of World War I: Latah County Stories, the Latah County Historical Society's exhibition about local residents' experiences during the Great War. To commemorate this important date and cap off the 18-month exhibition run, LCHS is hosting a closing reception on Thursday, November 8th from 5 to 7pm at the McConnell Mansion.
Since April 2017, the museum has featured three different phases of the exhibit, which was the product of many more months of research. All curated content will be on display Thursday evening throughout the historic house. Museum Curator Zachary Wnek will also share his thoughts on what he has learned throughout the project around 6:00pm. Light refreshments will be served at this free event. The public is invited to drop in for a short time or spend the evening with us.
