Veterans' Memorial Room Grand Opening - May 25, 2015

The Veterans' Memorial Room honors our Zeeland veterans and the community that supports them.


The military uniforms that are on display were worn by citizen soldiers and sailors from our community. We have included a short biography on each individual.


You will see military artifacts which were donated to the museum along with information explaining each piece and its significance.


For those interested in our community and the people who live here, our Veterans' Memorial Room is a walk through time. This includes the "Back Home" wall which shows how our community supported the war effort during two World Wars.


Thank you to all who have served their country!

Some gave the ultimate price - others came back to serve their community !


Remodeling the Veterans' Memorial Room would not have been possible without the generous support of many volunteers and organizations.
