The America Museum

Our Mission

The America Museum seeks to have visitors reflect upon and understand the events, struggles and sacrifices for freedom, equality, and democracy.  The Museum creates concise unbiased and balanced exhibits on relevant topics that connect stories to current events. The public will be enlightened and engaged in discussion, interactive exhibitions, and programs.  Americans must acknowledge and honor the brave, relish our victories, study the failures, help heal the scars, and ensure that we learn from the past.


Second Thursday Every Month at 5:30 PM

Each month local historian Bev York will be your host for this interesting and informational series of presentations.  Please join us for tea, a light snack and a great discussion.  Topics range from the role of the outhouse during the American Revolution to a WWI canine war hero to Washington crossing the Delaware.  Reservations are recommended by going to our events page (but they are not required).  Suggested donation of $10.

"America The Great" Cabarets

Entertaining and enlightening, our cabaret nights combine music, theatre, dance and history with period food and, of course, great company.  Enjoy music from the WWII era while snacking on a WWII ration cake, and maybe a taste of mead like the colonists would have made!


Weekly "shorts"

Children's Educational Programs

We partner with the Windham After School Program and local home school programs to provide interesting history lessons, often presented by a famous historical patriots.  Instructional and fun, presented in a manner that kids understand, interactive and focused on local events and people.

Every week on Wednesday mornings we present our "shorts."  These are short programs focused on our brave men and women who have served our country.  Topics reflect current events and highlight the outstanding courage, fortitude, entrepreneurship and skills that made our country's soldiers the founders and protectors of liberty.  Programs are held at our Veterans Coffeehouse from 9-11 am


Our exhibits change frequently to reflect current events and popular trends.  However, we have ongoing exhibits that honor the diverse group of Americans who helped shape our country.

65th Regiment

The Borinqueneers

The U.S. Army's 65th Infantry Regiment, the only all-Hispanic unit that hailed mostly from Puerto Rico, inspires pride for their dogged combat in the Korean War in the early 1950s.  The 65th is credited with participation in nine campaigns, and its members have at least 10 Distinguished Service Cross awards, 256 Silver Stars and 596 Bronze Stars. More than 750 Puerto Ricans lost their lives in Korea.

Code Talkers

American Indians were instrumental in ending world wars as communication specialists who used their native language to send secret messages on the battlefield. At least 14 native nations served including the Navajo (or Diné), Cherokee and Comanche in the Pacific theater during World War II, and the Choctaw Telephone Squad during WWI.
