The Duluth History Museum has expanded its collection of military uniforms to 11 and added photographs, plaques and other memorabilia. The artifacts range from World War I to modern conflicts.
The uniforms on display belonged to Duluth residents or their family members, according to Judy Wilson, president of the Duluth Historical Society. “Each uniform has a name and picture to go with it, so you can visualize them while they so proudly served our country.”
Chattahoochee American Legion Post 251 in Duluth has loaned photographs and plaques to the exhibit. “Come and be inspired and proud of our military men and women,” Wilson said.
The museum is located in the Historic Strickland House, designed and built by Alice Harrell and Henry Strickland Jr. The home was completed in 1898. As mayor of Duluth in 1923, Alice Strickland was the first female mayor in Georgia. The home also served as Duluth’s first hospital.
The museum’s permanent exhibits feature Duluth’s founding families and depicts the city’s development.
The address of the museum is 2956 Buford Hwy. Hours are Friday and Saturday from noon to 3 p.m. Admission is $1 for children and $3 for adults.
