The Wende Museum Launches Cold War Culver City Website8:34 AM
In conjunction with Culver City's Centennial, The Wende Museum of the Cold War announces the launch of Cold War Culver City, a website exploring the social, political and economic history of the Cold War in Culver City, California.
Created in close collaboration with community partners, the website offers community stories from the Cold War era and an interactive map for self-guided tours of local hidden in plain sight sites that are significant in the history of the Cold War, including The Wende Museum's future home, the Culver City National Guard Armory.
This educational resource encourages greater interest in the history of Culver City and highlights the role it played in Cold War politics, culture and industry.
This project was made possible with support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
The Cold War Culver City project directly advances The Wende Museum's mission "to inform and inspire a broad understanding of the Cold War and its enduring legacy."
