The World War II Collection of Kevin Heskin
Blackstone Valley Historical Society, 1873 Old Louisquisset Pike, Lincoln, RI 02865
On Saturday, November 21st, Kevin Heskin will again bring an exhibit of his remarkable collection of World War II artifacts to North Gate.
Heskin has long been fascinated with the twentieth century World Wars. He has spent more than a decade hunting down everything he can find that memorializes these devastating times in our history. His collection includes German, Italian, French, Spanish, British, and Japanese pieces as well as American ones.
In 2017, he amazed us with his exhibit of his World War I collection at BVHS, and in February 2019, he showed many pieces from his World War II collection. This month, we will have the opportunity to see more highlights from his World War II memorabilia, including uniforms, helmets, map cases, gas masks, rifles, and other items that have survived from the 1940s.
Don’t miss this event! We ask that all our guests wear masks and practice social distancing while viewing the collection.
