Telling our veterans' stories
The Stratford Veterans Museum's mission is to recognize those veterans from Stratford who have served our country honorably in war and in peace and to act as a repository for their stories.
The museum will be geared to accommodate school children to foster their appreciation of United States history and the sacrifices of those men and woman who made our country possible. The major goal for the museum is to make it a site for school field trips.
If you are a veteran, who lives in/or has lived in Stratford, or the family of a Stratford veteran, and would like to share your story of service, or if you have items related to a Stratford veteran you would like to loan or donate, please email us.
Find us at 5952 Main St., Stratford, next to Putney Chapel.
