GAINES — The Cobblestone Society Museum is looking back to the “The Lost Generation” and ahead to a greater future in Orleans County.
The Ridge Road museum’s coming World War I exhibit is meant to bring awareness of the local involvement in The Great War before the 100th anniversary of U.S. troops joining the trench war of the western front.
“We’re capitalizing on the centennial of World War I, and we’re on the front edge, most museums are waiting until 2017,” Cobblestone Society Museum Director and Curator Matt Ballard said.
The exhibit, mounted in the Charles A. and Mary Jane Danolds Room, features artifacts, uniforms and photographs donated by individuals and the collections from the Medina and Clarendon historical societies and the county’s historical association.
