Selle-Agner Remembering the 1940's exhibit on the second floor of the Route 66 Association Hall of Fame and Museum.

Ron Selle and Darlene Agner, the people behind the donated items, designed the exhibit to celebrate the 1940's period before World War II, during the war and post war. It features three complete rooms of furniture - a kitchen, dining room and a bedroom - and some of the staple items that defined 1940's style.

The exhibit includes a fashion display of dresses and hats from the 1940's, a military memorabilia display for remembering World War II, a section for sheet music from the 40's as well as some instruments, and a section of children's toys. There is also a newspaper display with major headlines from that decade, including World War II related headlines.
