|Description & Services|
A handful of Veterans, 20-30 items of memorabilia, and the desire to preserve the mementos and information of "those who served" from Shelburne County became the beginnings of what is now the Western Counties Military Museum.
The Municipality of Barrington provided a space in the Old Court House to house the articles; the local Legion donated a sum of money to help build shelves, etc. Local businessmen donated showcases, mannequins, etc. Veterans and families dug in attics and closets to unearth a large collection of military articles.
The Western Counties Military Museum is more than just a museum - it is a powerful representation of the love and support of the community for "those who served" our country and will not be forgotten.
Some of the artifacts on display include artifacts and memorabilia from World War I and II, Cannonballs from the 1600's, a Blackwatch member uniform and Nazi memorabilia.
While visiting you can learn the stories of the local men and women who proudly served our country.
