Western Counties Military Museum

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 historic 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 artifacts and


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.
