Home and Abroad: Saco At War
Now through October
"Home and Abroad: Saco at War" is a new mini exhibit at the Saco Museum. The exhibit was created by University of Southern Maine Art Department student Abby Dell'Erba, who interned with us over the summer. The display covers Saco's involvement in the Civil War, World War I, World War II, and the WWII Home Front. Many of these artifacts were donated to the Saco Museum from local veterans who served. This exhibit will run through October.
