Dear Folks: The Making of an Exhibit

Tuesday, February 26, 2019

The Rockpile Museum is opening an incredible new exhibit featuring letters sent home by Campbell County soldiers during World War II. Not only will guests have the chance to read a variety of letters from Campbell County soldiers, they will also have the unique opportunity to listen to a selection of letters being read by the descendants of these men. Read and hear their stories as they talk about life in the South Pacific, Europe, Asia, and much more. Join the Rockpile Museum for an exclusive exhibit opening on February 26, 2019, at 6 p.m. The evening will begin with a short documentary, "Dear Folks: The Making of an Exhibit," followed by a roundtable discussion with the volunteers and family members who came together to create this powerful exhibit. Refreshments highlighting foods from the 1940s era will be available. The exhibit will run from February 26th through May 25, 2019.
