Current Exhibit

“A Call to Arms”
June 2nd – September 28th, 2014
For many wealthy Americans France was a second home, so when war broke out in 1914 they put their money and influence behind the war effort. Notable American women, including Margaret Brown, became vital to the humanitarian relief efforts in France by establishing ambulance motor pools, opening field hospitals, distributing food and rebuilding devastated areas. The war hit closer to home for Mrs. Brown when her son Lawrence entered service in 1917. A Call to Arms will explore both the exemplary service of Colorado soldiers like Lawrence Brown, as well as the important role of the American women who served in the Great War providing humanitarian aid. This exhibit will highlight Margaret Brown’s body of work during the war which would later earn her the prestigious French Legion of Honor award.

As part of the Molly Brown House Museum’s summer exhibit A Call to Arms, which commemorates World War I and Margaret “Molly” Brown’s involvement, the Museum is proud to host images from American women rebuilding France 1917-1924: A photo exhibition from Anne Morgan’s War. This exceptional photo exhibition is comprised of period photographs that depict the work of the American Committee for Devastated France. Photos on exhibit are from the photographic collection of the Franco-American Museum, Chateau de Blerancourt in Picardy, France.

A Call to Arms exhibit partners include: the American Friends of Blerancourt, the Broomfield Veterans Memorial Museum, the Colorado Chapter of the American Red Cross, the Cumberland County Historical Society, History Colorado, Miramont Castle, the Fashion Archives and Museum of Shippensburg University, The Traveling Historian, and the Willamette Heritage Center.
