Observance of Armistice Day
November 12

The 2014 Historic Photography Show commemorates the Ligonier veterans of World War I and features a fantastic display of photos and memoribilia. This is also the 100th anniversary of World War I (1914-1918).

The exhibit is on display inside the Pennsylvania Room and in the hallway just outside the room. There is also a small display in the outside window case near the library’s main entrance.


November 12 - Observance of Armistice Day

In observance of Armistice Day, the ending of The Great War in 1918 (now called Veteran's Day), there will be a reading of the names of Ligonier Valley men and women who served.


The mission of the Historic Photography Show (as well as the smaller shows held throughout the year) is to present a facet of Ligonier Valley history that is interesting, educational and may have been overlooked in the past. In addition, the photographs and documents copied become a permanent part of the Pennsylvania Room collection. This is an ideal manner of preserving our history and provides patrons with a strong base from which to conduct research.
