    We enjoyed our visit to the Purple Heart Hall of Honor. Interesting to see the development of the award and see profiles of some of the recipients. I wish there were more profiles but it is up to the ...  more »

    Every American should visit this little museum. You will learn about the history of the purple heart and see a very nice short film. There is quite a bit of military memorabilia as well.  more »

    Wonderful. A don't miss. Angered by the youngster below who obviously had no clue where she was or what she was visiting. The Hall and its grounds are a gem. It's a shame more people don't know about it. More children should be made aware of the sacrifices my father and probably others in her family made so she could review the local pizzeria! History is not for all but hopefully more were reached. Hopefully more school groups get the privilege of visiting The Purple Heart Hall of Honor and it's grounds!

    The museum is lovely and informative, filled with memorabilia ranging from the revolutionary war all the way up to our most recent military engagements. Built on the historical site of a revolutionary cantonment, the premises also displays several buildings from the early days of the U.S.. Informational plaques dot the landscape providing snapshots of history while friendly and knowledgable staff perform re-enactments of different common tasks of the times. The main building houses a gift shop, museum, and the Purple Heart archive, as well as a miniature theatre constantly showing a short video about the history, importance, and meaning of the Purple Heart, a prestigious medal awarded to service men and women injured or worse in the military. Well worth the time of the avid history buff or any individual interested in some of the finer workings of the United States and its military history.

    Lots of Pokestops! Spent years closer to it and didn't realize how cool it was until recently. They have replica from the revolutionary war on grounds and if you go at the right time of year....WILD RASPBERRIES!
