JANESVILLE, Wis. — The Rock County Historical Culture wants location residents to add artifacts and memorabilia to be exhibited as portion of a new exhibit that will spend tribute to the county’s loaded automotive historical past.
RCHS’s approaching exhibit, Rock County Legacies, is slated to open up in August. It is envisioned to attribute artifacts from Janesville’s shuttered General Mototrs Assembly Plant, Fisher Overall body, the nearby UAW and Janesville Car Transportation Co.
Products can be donated or quickly loaned to the historical society for inclusion in the exhibit.
“We truly feel quite privileged to have the prospect to collect and share stories, goods and memorabilia from the persons who labored at GM, and their households,” said Tim Maahs, Govt Director of RCHS. “Capturing and sharing these factors is so important mainly because GM’s personnel ended up and are an integral section of the historical past of Rock County.”
RCHS officers claimed local community associates have now donated hundreds of artifacts, which includes vehicle areas, worker badges and photos of the first GM plant, miscellaneous applications, previous adverts, and a banner signed by all of the GM plant personnel in 2008 when the very last Tahoe rolled off the line.
