Pop-Up Museum – Stories about Valley Junction Descendants
The Pop Up Museum exhibit is a series of double-sided panels highlighting the diversity and culture of the Valley Junction community. Each panel tells a story of a VJ group or family beginning with some of the first families to the area. These families either immigrated from Central and South America and Serbia or were a part of the Great Migration of African Americans from southern states.
Our Iowa history captured in this mobile pop-up museum illustrates the power and resilience of a diverse people forming a community in the heartland.
