For Home and Country: Reno County in the Great War

Date: April 6, 2017 to April 6, 2018, 9:00 AM
Venue: Reno County Museum - 100 S Walnut
Sponsor: Reno County Museum

The Event:

The Reno County Museum announces the opening of a new exhibit, "For Home and Country: Reno County in the Great War." This illuminating exhibit will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the United States entry into World War I. "For Home and Country" will explore Reno County’s activities leading up to, during, and at the close of the WWI. The exhibit will be comprised of items used by Reno Countians who went overseas into the fray of battle, including many uniforms, equipment, and documents. Of special note, items that will be on display will be a German Mauser C96 automatic pistol, stahlhelm (steel helmet), and stirnpanzer (armor plate). Visitors will also have the unique opportunity to view three-dimensional images of WWI reproduced from the museum’s collection. Additionally, nine of the bridge markers honoring Hutchinson’s WWI fallen, originally located at bridges around Hutchinson, will be temporarily moved to the entrance of the Reno County Museum to help kick off the exhibit opening. James Dull, City Superintendent for Hutchinson, his staff, as well as Dale Evans and Andrew Evans of Wagner Memorials have contributed their efforts in relocating the markers to the Reno County Museum courtyard entrance. The bridge markers will make their home at the entrance to the museum for six months to one year before eventually being incorporated into the Veteran’s Memorial currently being constructed in South Hutchinson.
