Museums of Old York and
World War I Exhibits
- From Neutrality to Victory: York Remembers the Great War - Our new WWI exhibit is now open to the public.
- Other buildings are also open.
- As always, York residents can visit the Old Gaol for free!
York is a town rich in history. Many of the original settlement buildings have been preserved and serve as a living museum ... a glimpse into southern Maine's past. In addition, the Museum has added a World War I exhibit.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the war in Europe now known as World War I. Initially, most Americans knew of the spreading devastation from Belgium to Russia as distant new events. But others, both men and women, were so moved by the suffering there that they offered to serve. Once the U.S. declared war on Germany in 1917, more people gave of themselves, with many making the ultimate sacrifice. Post card image from the Museums of Old York web site.
