In commemoration of the 100 year anniversary of America's involvement in The Great War (WW1) and the 50th anniversary of US involvement in the Vietnam war, the Wolcott Complex will be featuring multiple events and exhibits in remembrance. The exhibit will feature displays throughout the entire Wolcott house through December, and a period-accurate War Garden planted on the grounds.
