A group of new exhibits at Carrabelle’s Camp Gordon Johnston Museum will depict the World War II lifestyle. The scenes include a living room, hospital tent and military office.

The exhibit is a work in progress and the museum is seeking period artifacts to dress the rooms. Still needed is a small living room set (love seat, armchair, end tables and lamps); pictures for the wall including needlepoint and doilies and antimacassars for the furniture.

Several manikins, such as “Melba the war bride,” (above) will inhabit the new exhibits. A pair of vintage army boots is needed for Jack, a soldier who will be on display. If you have something to donate, please contact the museum at 697-8575.
