Our second exhibit “Kilmer, The Man & Kilmer, The War Years” will focus on local Poet Joyce Kilmer. “A patriot and warrior, a poet and lecturer, a husband and a father, a sergeant in WWI.”

2018 is the 100th anniversary of the death of Joyce Kilmer- poet, journalist and lecturer who enlisted in 1917 to join the fighting and died in action in July, 1918 as a Sergeant with the Fighting 69th. This exhibit tells the story of this greatly-admired hero.
