Historical society honors World War II participants

MONTOUR FALLS--A special exhibit presented by the Schuyler County Historical Society marks the end of World War II and honors county residents' war involvement, both military and civilian.
"Schuyler Answered the Call" opens on Wednesday, Sept. 2, in the Gallery of the Brick Tavern Museum in Montour Falls. The special exhibit will be in place through the end of the year.
The Historical Society invited the community to participate in the exhibit by providing information about their loved ones who served. Seventy people are featured thanks to the community's response, exhibit organizers said.
World War II ended on Sept. 2, 1945, when Japan signed surrender documents in a ceremony on the deck of the American battleship USS Missouri in Tokyo harbor.
Fighting in Europe had ended in May. Although World War II began with Nazi Germany's attack on Poland in September 1939, the United States did not enter the war until after Japan bombed the American fleet in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on Dec. 7, 1941.
Brick Tavern Museum hours are Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Thursday 2-8 p.m.; and Saturday through the end of September 10 a.m to 2 p.m. Health and safety guidelines will be enforced, including requiring all visitors to wear masks.
For more information, call the Museum at 607-535-9741.
