NEVADA CITY– The Eric Rood Administrative Center in Nevada City will feature an exhibit entitled “Wake up, America!  Nevada County During World War I” that will run from November 1st through December 31st.  

Eric Rood Administrative Center

950 Maidu Avenue

Nevada City, CA 95959

Open Monday – Friday 8:00 am – 5:00 pm

This program is part of a project entitled Over Here: Nevada County’s Experience of WWI which is supported by California Humanities through an Humanities for All Quick Grant. 

Although the battlefields of World War I were far from rural Nevada County, its residents were deeply engaged in the war’s issues and the challenges it presented.  The war was the most consequential event of the 20th century, yet it has almost faded from modern memory. Over Here: Nevada County’s Experience of World War I is a multifaceted program designed to reconnect our community to this transformational event in our nation’s history.  Our program is scheduled to coincide with the worldwide commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Armistice between Germany and the Allies that brought and end to the fighting of the Western Front on November 11, 1918.
