Open House, WW I Exhibits

                    Ernie Ferrell and friend

This year the Robbins House will be having a special exhibit on WW I with objects and uniforms. In the glass case downstairs will be showing artifacts Albert Graf brought back on his return home. The other cases will have items from local soldiers as well. Upstairs they will have information on the Home Front during that time. We know at least 68 WW I soldiers were buried in the Wakeman Cemetery. If anyone has photographs they would like to donate to the Archives, please send them to us or scan and send them through the website. If you bring photographs to the Archives, we can scan them so you may keep the original. We would like to have a file on all of the men that served in WW I from Waterville or were buried in the Wakeman Cemetery. On Saturday April 28th the Robbins and Sargent Houses will be open from 9 AM until Noon. There will also be two walking tours. The Downtown walking tour will meet at Robbins House at 9 AM and the Uptown walking tour meets at the Wakeman Hall at 12 noon. The Wakeman Archives will be open from 10 AM to 2 PM on that day.
