AT12SEPSUN13FRONT PORCH EXHIBIT AT DANGBERG HOME RANCH10:00 Am - 1:00 Pm (13)Dangberg Home Ranch Historic Park, 1450 State Route Hwy 88 Minden, NV 89423Event Type :Arts & Culture,Community Events
A special exhibit of items selected from the park’s artifact collection will be presented on the front porch of the ranch house this weekend, and visitors will also be able to see a portion of the house’s interior. You’re invited!
“Pitching In: The Red Cross and the Home Front during Two World Wars, 1917-1945,” uses Red Cross-related artifacts across two generations to show how Americans prepared during two world wars. These include first-aid manuals, lapel pins, news clippings and other items. The display will also include images from wartime advertising campaigns, designed to inspire Americans to volunteer their talents, service, and blood for the common good.
The exhibit will be open Saturday-Sunday, September 12-13, from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm.
This is a free event, but we’re hoping for donations (got pocket change?) to help build our Restoration Fund to support repair and preservation of the park’s historic buildings and structures. Some of these buildings will also be open during the exhibit.
Funding to support these exhibits and the Friends of Dangberg organization has been provided by Nevada Humanities through Congress and the National Endowment for the Humanities as part of the CARES Act economic stabilization plan of 2020.
