Greatest Generation Society Museum

A collection of WWII artifacts, fully dressed mannequins in authentic WWII military uniforms of American men and women complete with weapons, along with German, Russian and Belgium soldiers. This would be described as wonderful if it were at the Smithsonian, but to find it in this rural town is nothing short of amazing.
