World War I in Dutchess

Historical exhibit continues through Oct. 31

Vassar and the Dutchess County Historical Association have created an exhibit at the college called “Over Here/Over There,” which examines how World War I impacted the lives of county residents and faculty and students. It marks the 100th anniversary of the agreement that ended the war in 1918.

The free exhibit runs through Oct. 31 in the Faculty Commons at the college, which is located at 124 Raymond Ave. in Poughkeepsie.
