The Local History Department is proud to present a new exhibit: World War I:100 Years, commemorating Pittsfield’s role in World War I. Artifacts and newspaper articles take you back to a time of rationing, victory gardens, and patriotic events in Pittsfield. Come see photographs of Pittsfield’s World War I veterans and read about life in the trenches and on the Home Front.
