HISTORY WAS HERE, Heritage Celebration at Willamette Heritage Center in #SalemOR – July 11

Part 2

This family-friendly event explores the vital role the Thomas Kay Woolen Mill played in the war effort and the importance of civic participation through Victory Gardens and Civil Defense Stations.

Meet a real-life Rosie the Riveter, enjoy 1940s music and see military uniforms and vehicles, including a “DUK” amphibious vehicle.

Kids can break secret codes, train as expert plane spotters, and join our Scrappo building contest!
