Old newspaper headlines. Hawthorne Ordnance Museum

Small, locally-run museum celebrating all things military, focusing on ammunition from the past and the area's munitions history.

The folks who staff the Hawthorne Ordnance Museum are friendly and enthusiastic about their collection. My favorite parts were the old newspaper front pages on important historical dates, and the drone helicopter on loan from its manufacturer.
