Marking the 70th anniversary of Victory in Europe Day, an exhibit illustrating the role of Jefferson County in World War II opened at the Hiwan Homestead Museum on Friday.

Titled “We Can Do It: Jefferson County in World War II,” the exhibit features a large aerial photo of the former Denver Ordnance Plant in Lakewood, where 22,000 employees of the Remington Arms Co. produced ammunition for the war effort in the 1940s.
