Memorials and Museums

While enjoying the start of summer, it’s also important to remember the reason for Memorial Day, honoring the men and women who have fought and continue to fight for our country.

At the Veterans Memorial Museum, not far from downtown, you will be reminded of the ultimate sacrifices that have been made over the last century. You’ll find war-time memorabilia dating back to World War I, the museum’s walls are lined with every known name of the fallen over the past 100 years. You can visit the museum Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

Also at the start of the Highway 76 “Strip,” you can have a few moments of peace and serenity in the Veterans Memorial Garden. Beautiful sculptures, pieces of art, and floral arrangements signifying each soldiers’ willingness to serve are proudly displayed in the garden. This outdoor escape is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

It’s one of the best festivals for music lovers (and BBQ lovers!). Bluegrass & BBQ began May 2 and concludes Memorial Day weekend.
