Overview

Explore the revival and decline of local coal and coke industries, the surprising jobs of our distilleries and breweries, and the important work of rationing, buying war bonds, and scrap drives. 10 local organizations have helped us display more than 100 artifacts  from Scottdale, Mount Pleasant, Connellsville, Perryopolis, and other towns near and far. Catch a glimpse of popular 1940s films like Casablanca and Rebecca, and listen as local homefront veterans share their stories. Then, relive your childhood and challenge your friends to a slinky race or take a look through a real 1940s View-Master. Finally, share your own memories of the war or loved ones who served with us on an antique typewriter.
