The War Vet Museum

War Vet Museum in Canfield Ohio Front of Building

The War Vet Museum is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1988 by Lew & Joyce Speece. Lew was a World War II Marine Corps veteran (6th Marines tank battalion) and the commander of the American Legion Post 177 from 1980 to 2013. The museum was founded by Lew and Joyce to honor all who served in the U.S. military and was the home to American Legion Post 177 for many years.

The War Vet Museum houses over 40,000 artifacts from the Revolutionary War to the modern day war on terror. There are three floors and a basement full of history honoring veterans and teaching about America's past. All items are donated and many tell a unique and personal story. All items displayed are donated and are not bought or sold. Once an artifact finds its home at the museum, it is here to stay and be enjoyed by generations to come. Our displays are always being updated so come in and see what's new.
