An exhibit commemorating the 100th anniversary of World War I opens at Livingston’s Yellowstone Gateway Museum on Veterans Day, Saturday, Nov. 11, with an opening reception from 1 to 6 p.m.
Biographies of local World War I veterans and newly acquired artifacts expand the museum’s existing military exhibit.
New stories about World War I veterans focus on Elizabeth (Sandelius) Benbow, William Allen Hunter, Roland Kaiser (and the Kaiser family), and Ray Yardley, Sr.
Photos, uniforms, equipment and archival material, including letters and postcards sent from France to Montana during the war, and original stone lithographs by French artist Jules Abel Faivre, will be on display. Recently donated large-format John Haberstroh photographs of servicemen departing from the Livingston Depot in 1917 and post-war, marching in a Victory Parade in downtown Livingston, will also be exhibited.
The Honoring Park County Veterans exhibit chronicles the poignant stories and displays artifacts of the men and women who served in the military from the Civil War to present day. The World War I exhibit will be on display for at least one year.
The Yellowstone Gateway Museum is located at 118 W. Chinook St. in Livingston. Visit yellowstonegatewaymuseum.org for more information.
