Welcome to the Unionville Museum

Unionville in WWI – Over There & Back Here                                                          Current Exhibit August 26th – November 11th

Over There & Back Here – Unionville in WWI”, our 80th exhibit focuses on Unionville’s response to the United States’ entry into the 1914-1918 World War.  Unionville supplied over 100 young men willing and able to fight.  Although less than half of them served overseas with the American Expeditionary Force, all were necessary to alow the U.S. to fight an overseas war and to protect both its shipping and its harbors and coastlines.  Second, Unionville supplied money to finance the war exceeding its goals in each of the four Liberty Bond campaigns.  Finally, Unionville’s people worked hard for the Red Cross and other support organizations; and also helped by cutting back on materials such as coal, wheat and beef, all needed to support the war effort.  The museum is open Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.  For group visits beyond regular exhibit hours, please call 860 673-2231 and leave a message.  Someone will get back to you to make those arrangements.
