The War Vet Museum contains over 40,000 artifacts related to the experiences of military personnel. The museum is located in a historic home that was built in 1809 and remains the oldest building in Canfield.
The War Vet Museum was established in 1988 by Lew and
Joyce Speece. The couple wanted to create a space that could preserve the history of military local personnel. The museum
is organized as a non-profit organization and all artifacts and memorabilia were donated to the
founders. The museum
offers free admission to all who come, but donations are appreciated. Highlights of the museum include replicas of trains used during the Civil War and other conflicts in the basement.
