This past Sunday, July 16th, the Molly Brown House Museum in Denver celebrated her 150th birthday and how she used her wealth to help the poor and disadvantaged. The party went from 12-4pm on the street infront of the house with exhibit booths, performers, artwork, reenactors, and historic vehicles. The Broomfield Veterans Memorial Museum was honored to take part with our own display set up in the library.

Our newest special exhibit from the Forefather Series is up! The WWI story of a baker in the Navy was a big hit. This time around, we want to share the story of a Jewish American soldier who helped waterproof vehicles for the landing at Normandy and then witnessed the liberation of Buchenwald. Irving Fischer's story is one you won't forget. His photographs tell a story of the Holocaust's aftermath from his perspective and a life thriving in Colorado after the war. We hope you'll stop by to see this exhibit during its two month run.
