World War II Exhibit on Display at the Hampton Community Center

World War II Exhibit

A World War II memorial exhibit named "We Can Do It! WWII" is currently on display at the Hampton Community Center through November 27th, during normal Community Center hours (M & F 6am - 9pm; T, W & Th 6am - 10pm; Sat. 8am - 6pm; Sun 12pm - 4pm).

This 500 square foot exhibit explores the development of the jeep, a uniquely American invention produced by the American Bantam Car Company in Butler, PA, and reveals the stories behind real-life "Rosie the Riveters" and local Tuskegee Airmen whose contributions made an unquestionable impact on the war effort.

The exhibit also showcases four lifelike museum figures of local WWII heroes, including Gen. George C. Marshall, Tuskegee Airman Lt. Carl J. Woods, Iwo Jima hero Sgt. Michael Strank, and the Westinghouse Company-inspired Rosie the Riveter.
