About The Event

A new exhibit honoring the contributions of Clark County, Nevada, residents to World War I opened at the Clark County Museum on Friday, Sept. 29, 2017. 
The exhibit called “Over Here: Clark County and World War 1” chronicles the efforts of Clark County’s young community in supporting Uncle Sam during the war effort. At the time, Clark County included a collection of small towns and settlements including Searchlight, Nelson, Goodsprings, Jean, Bunkerville, St. Thomas, Mesquite, Logan, Kaolin, Sandy, Las Vegas, Arden, and Crescent. The exhibit will be in the Clark County Museum’s Heritage Gallery through Jan. 28, 2018. The museum is located at 1830 S. Boulder Highway in Henderson. 

“Although Clark County’s population was only just over 4,000 people during World War 1, nearly every person had involvement in supporting the war effort,” said exhibit curator Malcolm Vuksich. “The men of Clark County volunteered for service or registered for the draft, the women volunteered for groups like the American Red Cross, and children joined organizations like the Boy Scouts of America and Girl Scouts.”

Many items featured in the exhibit have never been displayed from Clark County Museum collections, including a collection of 1917 Red Cross magazines, various railroad artifacts, and promotional posters. Those wanting more information about “Over Here” can call the Clark County Museum at 702-455-7995 or visit the museum on Clark County’s Parks and Recreation Department website pages at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov.
