“More Than Just a Riveter” Exhibit Opening Thursday
The Center for Regional Heritage Research and the City of Nacogdoches have a very special exhibit opening. They are inviting you and your family to come learn about the Women's Army Auxiliary Corp, and their place in military. As an extra bonus they will also include how this impacted women in Nacogdoches.
The exhibit opening will be Thursday, April 26th from 6 pm to 8 pm with opening remarks at 6:30 pm. There will be a special guest speaker from the WAAC Veteran's Association Chapter 94, along with some from the exhibit writers. Most of the artifacts on display are from The Gregg and Michelle Philipson Collection and Archive. Regular Exhibit Hours - Wednesday - Saturday 10 am to 2 pm. This will be on display at the railroad depot through June.
Find out why the Womens Auxiliary Corp was in Nacogdoches, and the hard work they did. They knew the faster and harder they worked, the faster their fathers, sons, husbands, and brothers would be back from the war. Using that as an incentive, they were compelled to do great things.
