The Taylor Veterans Museum and its Commission were instituted by the Taylor City Council on May 5, 2009, and officially opened on May 16, 2009.
The museum features beautiful display cabinets that currently house 11 veterans personal collections -- which are on loan or have been donated to the museum -- including a Korean War Medal of Honor Recipient Robert Simenek.
In the atrium of Taylor City Hall, a display case houses memorabilia honoring U.S. Rep. John D. Dingell, 2nd Lt. U.S. Army. Congressman Dingell is the longest-serving member of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Many other military-related items are on display in the museum's Room of Honor throughout the year. Displays will change over time to honor new arrivals.
If you or someone you know would like to showcase a service member's memorabilia in the museum, or serve as a volunteer host, forms are available from a museum volunteer or please call (734) 946-7029 or fax your request to (734) 946-4636.
