WW-I Centennial Exhibition

WW-I Centennial Exhibition

This is a special exhibit at the Red Mill Museum Village to honor the 100th anniversary of the United States’ entry into World War I. We have joined others in the state to commemorate the war by emphasizing the effects on people’s lives at home in New Jersey through our exhibit and related programs.

Items from the Museum’s collection are featured, including a group of Liberty Loan posters on view for the first time. Many were donated by the late Helen Tomson of Clinton, whose father Chester Tomson was the owner of the Red Mill at the time of the war.

In order to raise finances, a War Loan organization was established under the US Treasury Department. Within twelve Federal Reserve Districts, The Central Liberty Loan Committee entrusted the work of selling liberty bonds in various localities to experienced and influential men in their respective communities in order to meet subscribed quotas. Chester Tomson, the Mill owner, was the Liberty Loan Officer for the Town of Clinton.
