The Wright Museum, Wolfeboro, NH

Saturday, with the help of fellow Northern Conspirator Chris I organized a club trip to the excellent Wright Museum in Wolfeboro, NH. This is a museum entirely dedicated to WWII, but not your normal museum containing only military artifacts. Over half of the museum's exhibits focus on the home front and New Hampshire resident's contributions to the war. Don't get me wrong, the museum has PLENTY of fantastic military items on display including a very significant fleet of vehicles, almost all of which are in running condition and are used for parades and celebrations state wide. The Stuart tank you see above is one of two in the collection, the other one is a 'runner'. Chris is a volunteer in the museum's motor pool and arranged for special access for our group which was amazing - thank you Chris!

In addition to visiting to enjoy the museum, the club's members made a significant donation to the museum last year in memory of our friend Leo Murphy. Much to our pleasure, the museum had mounted a plaque dedicated to Leo in their honor roll at the entrance to the museum. It is shown below.

Following are some of the best photos that I took of the trip. If you're in the lakes area of NH I strongly dedicating a few hours to visit this excellent museum.
