Baldwin Historical Society will be participating in a traveling exhibit on World War II which will be on display at The Mount Lebanon Historical Society, 794 Washington Road, starting December 1.
The 500-square foot exhibit, created by the Senator John Heinz History Center for its Affiliate Program members, will be on display until January 29 on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5 to 8 PM and on Saturdays from 9AM to 3PM.
The ‘We Can Do It!’ WWII traveling exhibit explores Western Pennsylvania’s incredible impact on the home, industrial, and battle fronts during World War II.
Visitors to the exhibit will learn about the development of the jeep, a uniquely American invention produced by the American Bantam Car Company in Butler, Pa., and hear the stories behind Rosie the Riveter and the local Tuskegee Airmen whose contributions helped to turn the tide of the war.
A Navy uniform, donated by Pat Lombardi has been chosen to be part of the display. Additional biographical information about her father, a life long Baldwin resident, will be displayed as well.
More information can be obtained by calling President Pat Lombardi at 412-882-9986 or by attending our next meeting at the Baldwin Borough Building, 3344 Churchview Av. 15227. Our next meeting will be on December 10th at 7PM. Holidays Past will be celebrated with refreshments and light fare. Free and open to all. Bring one or two old pictures and/or old decorations to show and tell.
