Service & Sacrifice: Memorial City Hall Military Exhibits
They served with honor, let’s honor them.
This all-new, permanent exhibit will tell the stories of Harrison County at War. Located in our annex in the soon-to-be redeveloped Memorial City Hall these exhibits will bring history to life with real artifacts, first-person accounts, and poignant stories of service and sacrifice.
Scheduled to open November 11, 2017. Here is what we are working on right now...
UNIT 2 JOINING UP The people of Harrison County have a long tradition of military service. The decision to serve has always been made here, at home, and reflects the values of our society. Over time, some of our ideas about military service have changed and other traditions have stood the test of time. In this unit visitors will explore the stories of Harrison County men and women who led the way in defining service for their generation.
Five listening stations/videos featuring photographs of Harrison County people
