The Fauquier History Museum at the Old Jail will host “World War I Family Day” on Saturday, June 30.

The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 10 Ashby St. in Warrenton. The National Museum of the Marine Corps will co-sponsor the event, commemorating the 100th anniversary of World War I.

Exhibits will cover technology of “The Great War” and allow visitors to try on uniforms, see where soldiers fought and try their hands in some arts and crafts.

Also on June 30, the museum will open a new exhibit, “The War to End All Wars: Fauquier's Call to Duty,” marking the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. Visitors will learn about the different ways Fauquier County aided in the war, including those who served and who helped the war effort back home.

World War I Family Day is free and open to the public.

Thank you to everyone involved with putting this event together. My son and I attended and we enjoyed seeing the uniforms, artifacts and meeting the representatives from the National Museum of the Marine Corps. We look forward to visiting Quantico to see more of what they have to offer. The Old Jail is always interesting and I am thankful that we have such great volunteers in our community dedicated to keeping this history alive and offering these wonderful programs.
