Great place to tour and learn a lot about history and see rare donated items used during the time fame of each war. Love the McVaneys and their passion to help Vets with their issues dealing with post war issues.

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.

I thought this might be a boring experience----was I ever WRONG. The collection of memorabilia from Afghanistan, Vietnam, Korea, World War I and II was just amazing.
