"Knit Your Bit": The American Homefront during WW I

Summer Sundays, 1:00-3:00 pm, 93 Day Street 

We are open every Sunday afternoon between Memorial Day and Labor Day, and look forward to sharing our local history with members and visitors. Our summer exhibit features items from the Norwood Historical Society's historic costume collection, antiques of the period, and reproduction garments crafted by local knitters involved in the "Stitch Therapy" group of knitters at Morrill Memorial Library. Come learn about the war on the frontline and the homeliness as we mark the centennial of the US entry into the Great War.
