Welcome to the Wilson County Veterans Museum

Welcome to the Wilson County Veterans Museum

The Wilson County Veterans Museum and Plaza is located adjacent to the county’s courthouse on East Main Street in Lebanon, Tennessee.
It honors the men and women how served their country in all the U.S. Armed Forces.

The Museum is dedicated to veterans of all conflicts and features a treasure trove of artifacts from World War I & II, Korea, Vietnam, and Desert Storm. The crown jewel of the museum is a UH-1 Helicopter better known as a “Huey.” American soldiers who fought in the Vietnam War between 1966-68 flew in the helicopter. You can see many of the bullet holes from intense combat. And from 1980-95, it was used by members of the Tennessee Army Nation Guard in a variety of missions.

The plaza features carved granite stones depicting men and women from all the U.S. Armed Forces. They include the names of Wilson Countians who paid the ultimate price for our freedom.

“This plaza was designed through a collaborative effort by four Wilson County architects in honor of all veterans. Although given the opportunity to work individually, the architects chose to unite together and perform all services without compensation. It is our hope as you walk throughout the grounds of this plaza, that you sense the passion and patriotism instilled in every phase of the design. This plaza holds a vital key to the past, a firm foundation for the present, and a great hope for the future.”
– Randall Hutto, Wilson County Mayor
