It's no surprise to us that the Hudson Valley is full of history. This weekend you can get a taste of what things were like here in New York during World War I.


According to the Museum Village website, this Saturday (April 8th) they will be hosting their annual WWI event. Museum Village pays tribute to the men who fought and lost their lives during World War I with this commemorative event that includes demonstrations by re-enactors. There will be stories of military life and demonstrations on how equipment and machines were used during this time.

Along with the demonstrations there will be several authors and collectors on hand who have incredible knowledge and materials of the early 1900's during the war.  Author of World War I New York: A Guide to the City’s Enduring Ties to the Great War” Kevin Fitzpatrick will be signing books all day and Bronx County Historical Society educator Vivian Davis will discuss the role women played during World War I. And just as an added cherry on top, Girl Scout Troops 202 and 640 will be doing their duty and selling girl scout cookies.

Admission for Veterans is free, adults pay $12 and $10 for children (4-12 years old). Museum Village is located in Monroe at 1010 State Route 17M.
