World War I Commemoration

On May 3, 1915, the poem In Flanders Fields was penned by Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae.  The red poppy fields from the poem became symbolic of World War I.

On May 3, 2018, we are hosting In Remembrance of the Red Poppy: A World War I Commemorative Event.  This program will be held at the New Castle Armory beginning at 7 p.m. (doors to open at 6:30 p.m.).  Light refreshments will be served by the Sarah Winston Henry Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.  This is an educational program highlighting some of Henry County’s World War I heroes.  There is no charge, and all Henry County residents are welcome to attend.

“Legacy Costs: The Story of a Factory Town”

Author Richard Hudelson visited the Museum on Saturday, April 21, to share some fascinating history that is the basis of his new book, Legacy Costs: The Story of a Factory Town.  Hudelson grew up in New Castle and recalls the days in the 1950s when labor struggles were very serious.  We thank him for spending quality time with us!

His book is available in our Gift Shop for $15 and is also signed with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Museum.  Stop by during business hours to pick up your copy!

To contact Mr. Hudelson:

We would also like to thank Sheila’s Bakery for providing some very tasty treats!
