Growing Up in Wartime Wilmington
Sunday, December 3, 2023
FREE EVENT! Join us for a special Museum program where Wilbur D. Jones, Jr. shares memories of growing up in Wilmington during World War II.
Wilbur was 7 years old when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor and America entered the war. This program provides a view of life on the home front and the area's contributions to the war effort. Those contributions earned Wilmington’s designation as America's first WWII Heritage City in September 2020.
