Expect an eerily good time this Halloween as the Troup County Historical Society presents its Mystery in Our History Halloween Walking Tours.  Beginning at Legacy Museum, the family-friendly walking tours will explore Historic Downtown LaGrange.  Visitors will encounter all-new stories of a mysterious bent told by the not-so-dead local residents who walked the streets of LaGrange in the twilight zone.  Back inside the museum, you never know what witches you may bump into, but there will be a cauldron of cider to warm your soul.  Tours will feature indoor and outdoor appearances, cover just over a half-mile on flat grounds and include a companion booklet and refreshments.

Faces of World War II:  West Georgia

Faces of World War II:  West Georgia

Archives | 05/02/2013

 

“Faces of World War II:  West Georgia” just opened at Legacy Museum on Main.  The exhibit features photographs, news clippings, uniforms, weapons, and much more, all dating from 1941 to 1945.  The exhibit was prepared by guest curators, Isabelle Knight, Bobby Cammon, and Terry Hoppe.  All of the materials relate to men and women who served in World War II and were originally from the area, who later lived here, or have family living in the area.  The servicemen, shown in the exhibit mostly in uniform, represent all walks of life -- from service station attendants to workers at Dixie, Dunson, or Callaway Mills to store clerks and surgeons. 

The World War II display is one of the most beloved exhibits that Legacy Museum has hosted.  The faces of local men who were part of “The Greatest Generation” are on display.  Their bravery and courage helped save the world for Democracy and helped make the United States the great country it is.  Their stories are fascinating and cover the earliest days of the war until its end.  The exhibit is ever changing, thanks to donations and loans from many families in the area.  Photographs from Honor Flights where local veterans visited the World War II Memorial in Washington, D. C. are also on display. 

Legacy Museum is located at 136 Main Street in LaGrange.  The exhibits are open free of charge and the public is invited.   The exhibit will be on display through the summer.
