The “Home-Front/Western Front” military exhibit in the Barn was planned as a tribute to the Clinton area soldiers who served in the “Great War”, or the “War to End All Wars” also known as World War One. The 10 foot by 11 foot room that houses the exhibit replaced a much smaller display cabinet. The décor and furnishings are authentic for the 1914 – 1918 period. Most of the items in the display would have been found in many homes of that era. The few actual military pieces, gaiters, gas mask, mess kit, and even the Ross rifle might have been mementos of an oh-so-rare visit home by a soldier son.
