A great place to visit to see the history of our veterans. As you enter you drop back in time as you see Civil War uniforms,as you move thru the exhibit you will see various Military uniforms, weapons,ships,and airplanes(models).Most of this has been donated by different collectors over the years. Donations are appreciated and you will be happy to give!
