Bill gave us a personal tour of the museum. He was very informative, and shared tons of personal stories of local people that had pictures and uniforms displayed there. The displays covered all the wars from WWI thru present day.

Dear Friend, THANK YOU for asking. There is NO fee to visit the Museum. The Museum's philosophy is this: "Our Veterans PAID THE PRICE for you." Therefore, we operate solely on donations and gifts.
