November 2018 will mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. To honor the men and women who served in that “war to end all wars”, Alliance for Historic Hillsborough and The Hillsborough Garden Club are joining other groups to present several activities in Spring 2018.
Poppies have been planted poppies at several sites around town. Watch for the spring blooms and remember those served in WWI
Planting sites include:
- Hillsborough Visitors Center
- Gold Park Pollinator Garden
- Hillsborough Town Hall
- Hillsborough Town Cemetery
- Plots adjacent to municipal parking off Churton Street
- Eagle Lodge (Masonic Hall)
- Moorefields Historic Site
- Burwell School Historic Site
WWI LIVING ROOM
An exhibit of authentic WWI era furniture and artifacts will be arranged to create a living room at the Historic Alexander Dickson House (Hillsborough Visitors Center).
The display will include donation from the community of furniture, items, war relics, photographs, and anything else that represents life in Hillsborough around 1918. If you would like to donate, contact Michael Verville at email@example.com
