World War I Centennial Commemoration

On March 2, 2017, in observance of the World War 1 Centennial Commemoration, the Collin County Historical Society and Museum will launch an exhibit to honor the role Collin County soldiers and Texas played in the Great War.

The museum exhibit will provide an overview of World War I, with special focus on different aspects and outcomes encountered by the United States during their involvement in the Great War. Visitors will be provided an iPad with apps preloaded on the device. These interactive apps have maps, timelines, photographs, and videos about World War 1. As visitors tour the exhibit, they will also be able to use the iPads to scan QR codes linked to videos, podcasts, documentaries, photographs, documents, songs and websites to learn about WWI.
