Martin County Historical Society is creating a county military book of anyone who has lived in Martin County at some time and served in the military. We're asking for help from the public to help create this book. Bring in all your family military pictures into the museum to be scanned for the book. When the book is complete it will be for sale to the public.
Our mission is to preserve Martin County history for generations to come. We want to inspire a love of history in the young and old alike. We are committed to restoring the old courthouse (current museum) to its former glory.
There are many ways to support our mission! You can read more about how to volunteer or become a member using the link at the top of this page. We rely on donations and grants to keep things running. If you would like to donate, you can use the Donate Now link at the bottom of this page. No amount of money is too big or small. Thank you for supporting our mission in any one of these ways!
