Soldiers & Sailors is the nation’s only memorial and museum dedicated to honoring the men and women of all branches of service and in all capacities (Active, Reserve, Guard). Operated and maintained by a 501c3 nonprofit corporation, the historic memorial was designed by renowned architect Henry Hornbostel and opened in 1910. The museum within the memorial offers a unique look into American history by telling the stories of the individuals that served our country through exhibits covering all of America’s conflicts from the Civil War through Afghanistan. Through educational and veteran outreach programs, museum displays and special events, we share and promote the significance of the facility to the community as a living memorial, an educational asset and a cultural treasure.
