American Legion Post 3 Cecil B. Buchanan War Museum
The American Legion Post 3 War Museum has been in operation since 1933. It contains a large collection of war fighting equipment, uniforms, and artifacts, organized by each major conflict. There is also a library of books and papers available for checkout by post members.
Our Facebook page has a gallery of photographs of some of the museum contents.
It is located at our post address in downtown Greenville. It is open and free to the public every Saturday and Sunday, and by appointment. Check our Events Calendar or our Facebook page for operating hours. Donations of your personal military artifacts, or money, which will be used to enhance and maintain the museum, are gratefully accepted.
