Online Tour - Military Room

Martin County has never been an area that shirks its military duties and many heroes from our area have participated in our country’s conflicts from as far back as the Civil War to the present day Afghanistan and Iraq Wars. Our Military Room is lined and filled with numerous items and mementos from our heroes’ time in the armed forces. On the north wall we have display cabinets full of artifacts from Fort Fairmount and the Civil war including, for example, officers’ swords, a wooden canteen, muskets, and discharge papers. On our east wall we have a host of uniforms lining the walls from several conflicts: The Spanish-American War, World War I and II, Korea, Vietnam, and the Iraq War. The Iraq War uniforms belonged to the Posivio boys who proudly served Martin County; Daniel was killed in a car accident while Robert lost his life in battle. On the south wall we have several things including a display for Capt. Frederick Wherland, an early pioneer best known as being the first roaming weatherman of Martin County. These are just a few examples; there are many more items in our Military Room that the MCHS is proud to display!
