Our Veterans Museum in the Walworth County History Center is a place honoring the men and women from those generations who served and are serving in the armed forces of the United States of America. It is here that today’s visitors as well as future generations can view military artifacts that were used by those who helped guard and preserve our freedom. Thanks to Korean War Veteran Bob Webster, other county veterans, County Administrator David Bretl, and the families of veterans, we now have a growing collection of military memorabilia dating from the Spanish American War to the present day military conflicts.
Stop in and learn about the sacrifices our brave men and women have made! Learn how fighting strategies and weaponry have changed over time! We have artifacts from Revolutionary War until present day.
Hours are Thursday-Friday from 1-4 and Saturday 10-2
Created originally by the American Legion Post 45, the Walworth County Veterans Museum is currently operated by the Walworth County Historical Society. Within the past year, the museum has been moved to the History Center at 9 S. Broad St. in Elkhorn, and has undergone multiple revisions to improve the experience of its visitors. The museum’s mission is to honor the men and women who have served in the U.S. military, and to highlight Walworth County’s role in major conflicts in U.S. history.
