The new exhibit “Wars Over” is now open at the Holliday Dorsey Fife Museum.
This year marks the 200th anniversary of the end of the War of 1812, the 150th anniversary of the end of the War Between the States, and the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II.
The exhibit speaks to these conclusions with photographs, artifacts, uniforms, and documents, while honoring the Fayette County men and women who fought for freedom.
Due to space limitations, many of these pieces are only brought out for special exhibits. The Museum encourages everyone not to miss this opportunity to see these rare items. The exhibit is on display through the end of August on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with extended hours on Friday until 5 p.m.
The Holliday Dorsey Fife House is a Georgian House in the Greek Revival Style built in 1855. In an effort to save the house from demolition, the house was rehabilitated and converted to a museum dedicated to the history of Fayette County and its residents. It is named for the three prominent families who lived in the house. The Museum is located off the Fayetteville square at 140 West Lanier Avenue.
