8th Annual Beaver County History Celebration Weekend – World War I

5/5/2018 - 5/6/2018

8th Annual Beaver County History Celebration Weekend – World War I 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War or WWI. Beaver County residents showed their support through parades, flag raising, demonstrations and enlistment drives. Sending food to troops created shortages that our citizens counteracted by observing meatless and wheatless days. The “Garden Movement” encouraged all to grow their own food. Our industries made important contributions: our steel industries produced steel plating for ships, excavators made by Keystone Drillers were sent overseas, Phoenix Glass made lenses for signal lights and lamps. Junction Park became a training ground (later moved to Brady’s Run). Purse strings were opened and funds were collected to provide for the soldiers. Thirty-six Beaver County men were killed in battle, while fourteen died later of their wounds. Influenza brought back from Europe by the soldiers ravished both military and citizenry who died by the hundreds. Beaver County presented a united front, but we can never underestimate the sacrifices of our native sons and daughters who fought, died and altered their lives to ensure peace and prosperity All historical museums will be open. Free admission with the exception of Old Economy Village. Saturday 10am-4pm; Sunday 1pm-4pm
