Historic Coast Guard Station 2017

The Society is currently in the public phase of our capital campaign to fund the new World War II Home Front Museum at the Historic Coast Guard Station opening October 2018. During the public phase, our goal is to raise the profile of the project and involve as many residents as possible in this bold, patriotic, and inspiring story. To learn more about our project, see the World War II Home Front Museum page and read our Case for Support.

The campaign committee has been working since last November to secure major gifts. Remarkably, we have raised $2.7 million of our $3.3 million goal. Thank you to the donors who have gotten us this far!  See our recent Thank You ad for a list of donors as of August 31, 2017.

Campaign committee:

Duane Harris, Campaign Chairman; Honorary Chairmen, John Dunham and Bill Jones III; Millard Allen, Susan Bacon, Sam Brinkley, John Campbell, Jim DeLong, Lewis Glenn, Ed Hawie, Linda Heagy, Ralph Jernigan, Brenda Jones, Scott Ledbetter, Kevin Lokey, Mike Martin, Cindy Rackley, Gene Rackley, and Hillary Stringfellow.
