Why the Veterans History Museum

 The purpose of this veterans museum is to honor the men and women from North and South Carolina who served in our armed forces.

Some examples of what the museum features include one-of-a-kind artifacts, uniforms, weaponry, original newspapers, personal letters, etc.

All of these special items weave the great and proud stories of service in World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Cold War, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan.

 They display and help us empathize with the wonder, but also the danger of our involvement in these wars, and the unique sacrifice of our military men and women!

 Love of country plus gratitude to those who served proudly equals the museum’s theme for all ages, both young and old.

Our Honor Wall hallmarks the service of veterans across North and South Carolina.

The Honor Wall is the first exhibit a visitor encounters. Golden plaques recognize those who served and those who are serving. Many funeral homes are now providing plaques in honor of passed veterans.

When looking for a meaningful way to honor a family member or friend, please consider an honor wall plaque. Click here for more information on how to honor your veteran.

Golden plaques are available for one hundred dollars and can be etched with up to forty five letters of your choice.  Four inch by eight inch golden plaques are also available for two hundred dollars and can be etched with up to fifty letters.
