The military room is located on the first floor of the residence where the sheriff and his wife usually had their bedroom.  The collection has many items from the Civil War, World War I, World War II and the Korean War. A major feature is the Civil War uniform of Col. Abel Streight who escaped from a southern prison camp and with others made his way home to Indiana. The museum has been given many uniforms of the men and women who served in our military, some of which are displayed in the room.  We have several articles and items related to the Grand Army of the Republic.
