WWII exhibit show on through February

A traveling exhibit called “Minnesota Homefront, World War II” will be on view at the Richfield Historical Society through Saturday, March 15.

The Minnesota History Center exhibit explores the accomplishments, sacrifices, disappointments and challenges that shaped the legacy of Minnesota’s Greatest Generation.

Among the things visitors can learn from the exhibit: what it was like to deal with rationing of products in short supply, to farm during a labor shortage, to work on the Iron Range, to develop war inventions, to be trained as a translator at Fort Snelling and to endure starvation to help science and the war effort.

The Richfield Historical Society, at 6901 Lyndale Ave. S., is open Wednesdays and Saturdays from noon to 4 p.m.
