Film Screening: Return to Normalcy: Post-World War II Life in Washington County

November 10, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Using actual footage collected from local residents, the Historical Society has produced a movie-length film depicting life in Washington County during the post-war years of the 1940s and 1950s. Relive the lives of the residents of Washington County during and after World War II, as the soldiers return home and families blossom and reorient their activities to civilian and domestic life.

Viewers might recognize old friends and neighbors as they celebrate holidays, engage in school activities, participate in parades, enjoy leisure time, shop, and earn a living. The film features seventy-year-old scenes of Hagerstown, Clear Spring, Funkstown, Williamsport, Keedysville and more.

Please join us for a nostalgic stroll down Memory Lane!
