The Museum is seeking any World War II-related memorabilia that can become part of a special exhibit planned this fall to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the United States entering the global conflict. Exhibit is planned to open Nov. 12, the day after Veterans Day, & run into 2012. The United States joined the growing war in Europe following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. As part of the exhibit's grand opening, the downtown museum plans to feature World War II reenactors , a display of vintage cars from the era and other special events. Exhibit organizers are asking any Dickson County residents to loan war-related items to be a part of the display, such as uniforms, photographs, war bonds, letters or other items that reflect the period of conflict from either the Allied or Axis side.
Items recently donated to the Clement Railroad Hotel Museum

If you are interested in loaning items to the museum for the exhibit, or would like to participate in its grand opening with a vintage car, contact the museum at (615) 446-0500.
