World War II Museum.

Eldred WWII Museum

This is a great World War II museum. Its outside is painted as though a tank is breaking through the wall. Inside there's a Rosie the Riveter stained glass window, and displays of the munitions that were manufactured at a plant in town during the war.

Eldred World War II Museum - Munitions Plant

The British and American munitions plant churned out eight million bombs, mortar shells and fuses during World War II. Fifteen hundred people worked there, 24 hours a day, from January 1942 to May 1945, supporting the war effort. The Eldred World War II Museum opened on Memorial Day, 1996, dedicated to the memory of the local people who worked in the plant and those who served overseas during the war.
