World War II Homefront
The entry of the United States into WWII caused people on the Homefront to contribute in creative ways to help support the war effort. Learn about what life was like on the Homefront through actual artifacts like propaganda posters, uniforms and ration books, and how civilians got involved to help win the war.
Georgia Pioneer Textiles
Early settlers had to use creative methods to survive in the new environment of the countryside with little to no modern conveniences. Learn how they created their own textiles like clothing, string, and yarn using old techniques and the environment around them. Watch a spinning wheel demonstration and try to spin yarn using a hand spindle.
Atlanta History Center’s Senior Outreach offerings have been developed in partnership with the Georgia chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.
