The Connellsville Canteen Museum was formed to keep the history of Fayette County resident’s alive, and showcase their sacrifices and contributions that played an essential part during WWII. Through this museum, we tell the story of why it was fought, how it was won, and what it means today - so that all generations, whether they are from Fayette County or not, will understand the price of freedom and be inspired by what they learn. The Connellsville Canteen is a place where you come to learn with your heart as well as your head. This is a place where you can feel America’s greatness through the stories and memorabilia of Fayette County’s finest resident’s whether they went off to war, or stayed behind contributing to the war effort.
