Traveling with a history buff on this road trip and this was a must stop. So glad we had the opportunity to visit and learn so much about the area and the stories of the service men.

We enjoyed walking thru this military museum. Lots of personal stories to read and some unusual artifact, like the bridal gown made out of a parachute and the stable of England. The first room is a history of Toccoa that was full of local trivia.

Overall just a really cool museum. Though the bulk of the museum is military; there are several really nice and informative local history sections as well. These focus on early Toccoa life and famous Toccoa residents. Definitely worth a visit if you're in town.
