Connellsville Canteen WWII Museum

Featured in our Canteen are stories, memorabilia, and photos of local hero's that fought during WWII.  Come and learn about the sacrifices our service members made during this time period.  Also included are some interesting facts about WWII, including some people that made a difference around the world towards the war efforts.

A few of our WWII displays are now interactive.   If your phone has a QR Code reader you can scan QR Codes attached to some of the photographs and actually hear "In Their Own Words" their story, thanks to Veterans Voices of Pittsburgh.  The names below followed by a VIDEO were interviewed and you can see and hear their stories.
