Military Room

For military enthusiasts and history buffs you will find much to see and absorb in our military room. Items on display run the gamut from Civil War days, World War I & II as well as Korea and Vietnam.

These items on display include weapons, artillery shell casings, uniforms and memorabilia donated to the museum from veterans or their families.

Items are rotated in and out of the room and are highlighted to commemorate special occasions such as anniversaries of military events.

Your time would be well spent viewing and studying items in this room.
