Infamy: The December 7, 1941 Exhibition will be in Plymouth until July 4 | History of the region


PLYMOUTH – It arrived on Sunday May 30th. It was at this point that the Plymouth Area Museum unveiled a new special exhibit titled Infamy: December 7, 1941.

The exhibit explores the events that followed Japan’s surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, which led to the United States entering World War II. After the attack, communities across the country united to support the war effort, performing various tasks to assist Allies of all sizes.

The Military Veterans Exhibit is on display at the Plymouth Area Museum.

“We are extremely proud to bring this important exhibit to North Central Ohio and we are very grateful to the National WWII Museum for working with us to make it possible,” said Jeff Lasch, president of the Plymouth Area Historical Society. “It is a huge achievement for a small museum like ours to host an exhibition of this magnitude.

“This is the only opportunity to see ‘Infamy’ in Ohio this year, the 80th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack. We invite visitors from all over the state to experience this unique event.”

Infamy: December 7, 1941 will be on display until July 4 at the Plymouth area Museum located in the square in the heart of historic Plymouth.

Dedicated to preserving and promoting the history of Plymouth and the surrounding area, the museum features three floors of exhibits, a gift shop and a community hall accessible to the public for private functions.

The most recent exhibit is the Military Veterans Hall which commemorates residents who served in our country’s armed forces throughout Plymouth’s existence. Names like McKown, Wolford, and Hanline appear on marked items families donated, including uniforms, shoe racks, and more.

The Infamy exhibition is presented Thursdays from noon to 4 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. and by special appointment for groups.
