Come see the new exhibit!

We're excited for the opening of another exhibit in the Irving D. Charlton Memorial Museum. Test of a Nation: Honor of a County is now open on the first floor of the museum. This exhibit does not attempt a complete understanding of the Civil War as a whole. Instead, it focuses on the lives of Barry County soldiers with personal belongings held in Historic Charlton Park’s collection. Barry County sent many of its young men to war and this exhibit tells the story of some of those men. The museum is open daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
