The Eldred World War II Museum   

World war II Vets, please note:
In the small town of Eldred, Pennsylvania there is an excellent WWII museum. Please visit when you have the opportunity! Here's the story.........  


The Eldred World War II Museum is located in Eldred, Pennsylvania, 85 miles south of Niagara Falls, New York, just over the New York Pennsylvania line,  on Pa. route 446. (Main Street)From the past to the present

During World War II, Eldred was the site of a British and American munitions plant which produced eight million bombs, mortar shells and fuses. 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 , which opened on Memorial Day, 1996, was dedicated to the memory of the local people who worked in the plant and those who served overseas during the war. The museum, recently expanded, is now an outstanding center for the presentation  of World war II artifacts, memorabilia and a library containing thousands of books and videos.

The museum is open daily....groups are welcome!
