Monroe County Historical Association

The Monroe County Historical Association is pleased to announce a free program open to the public. Local historian Jim Werkheiser will give his presentation, “Monroe County Memorializes Its World War I Doughboys” as part of the Third Thursday Lecture Series. The program will be Thursday, September 20, 2018, at 7:00 p.m. at the Stroud Mansion, 900 Main Street, Stroudsburg, PA 18360.

This year, the United States celebrates the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice, ending World War I in November of 1918. Locally, citizens will also honor the 1000+ Monroe County men, who enlisted, or were drafted, into the Armed Forces and in particular, those who died while serving. To Monroe County's credit, four memorials were erected between 1919 and 1932 in various locations around the county. This presentation will focus on these four memorials.

The Third Thursday Lecture Series is free, but reservations are required due to limited space. Light refreshments will be served. The presentation will be held on the 2nd floor of the Stroud Mansion, which is not handicap-accessible. For additional information or to make a reservation, please contact the Monroe County Historical Association office at (570) 421-7703 or email at info@monroehistorical.org.
