The Danbury Historical Society, now in its 75th year of celebrating local history has launched a new exhibition, The Great War, Danbury Answers the Call focusing on World War I.

This exhibit focuses on the contributions of Danbury citizens at home and abroad during World War I. All branches of service are recognized in this fascinating display.
