WWI Trenches Exhibit on Display at Bong Museum

Display Honors 58 Douglas County Men Who Lost Their Lives During the War

SUPERIOR, Wis. – A new World War I exhibit is now open at the Richard I. Bong Veteran’s Historical Center in Superior.

To honor the hundredth anniversary of the U.S. entering World War I, a mock trench is now on display for museum-goers to see what trench life may have been like.

The exhibit also tells the story of the 58 men from Douglas County who lost their lives in the war.

“Just to have something out here that looks like and kind of feels like a trench in a way is a huge thing for us and I think people will definitely love it when they see it and they’ll get a better appreciation for what these guys went through,” says Hayes Scriven, Executive Director of the Bong Historical Center.

The museum is also releasing a new book about the World War II ship building that took place in the Twin Ports.
