From mess kits to mortar rounds, these artifacts in the collection of the Wadena County Historical Society represent the stories of the men and women who served their country in the armed forces.  At the Museum there is one display room devoted entirely to the military. It is a place to learn more about Wadena’s veterans and the many contributions they made to this community.
