Raise Money for Education Programs at West Overton
As the Greatest Generation disappears, younger people have a more distant connection to World War II. The war and other pieces of local history are a small part of school curricula, so it’s up to museums like us to share that history. By purchasing an event ticket, you are helping us bring more students to West Overton. You also enable us to create more hands-on programs to bring history to life for visitors young and old.
