World War I in Northfield project launch

In just two short weeks – April 6, 2017 – we will commemorate 100 years since the United States entered World War I.

Here they come! Military parade in Northfield, c. 1917. Northfield Historical Society collection.

In light of this centennial, the Northfield History Collaborative is pleased to announce the launch of a new digitization project that will focus on imagery, documents, and artifacts that tell the story of the Northfield experience of the war years – on the war front and on the home front. Stay tuned for weekly updates on the rarely-seen materials from our community partners that will be added shortly to our online database of primary source materials.
