In Berryville, the Clarke County Historical Association Museum recently opened the “Clarke County During World War I” exhibit to honor the more than 200 Clarke County residents who served in the war. Photos, objects and documents have been donated to the exhibit by living relatives of veterans, and its curators are always looking for more memorabilia to add to the collection. There is also a computer in the exhibit space that visitors can use to learn more about Clarke County during the Great War. The hope is to better involve Clarke County students and other community members in their own local history.
