Our Military History On Display

I am proud to be on the board of directors of the Crittenden County Historical Society. We are the care keepers of the Historical Museum located at 124 East Bellville St. Our Museum is housed in the oldest church in Marion, built in 1881. The Museum has many history displays of items from our past history. We have a large Military collection. Several large display cases show military uniforms and items that families have donated, all these items are from Crittenden County families. There are many pictures and items from World War I and World War II.

With Memorial Day being this coming Monday, May 26th, if you are in the area, you should stop by the Museum and take a look at our Military collection and remember the men that gave their best, freely, that all which our Flag represents might be kept true and secure. The Museum hours are: Tues.-Sat. 10:00 AM to 3:30 PM.
