If You Don’t Watch Out
The Influenza Pandemic in and Around Washington County, September 1918-February 1919.
While the circumstances of the 1918 flu pandemic were singularly unique, community response and press coverage offer glimpses of familiarity to the response to the 2020 Covid Pandemic. This exhibit explores the impact of the 1918 flu pandemic and how the area responded to it while keeping in mind what our own response to an unfolding pandemic in the present looks like in real time.
Members of the Heritage Alliance support the organization through their annual membership dues as well as giving their time. Members receive copies of our quarterly newsletter The Link and are invited to members-only events.
