World War II Memorial

A bronze plaque resides inside the Museum and lists the names of local Ormond Beach World War II veterans. The original plaque was donated by Claus and Elsa Wiedemann, Cincinnati, Ohio residents who wintered in Ormond Beach. This plaque listed the 147 names of the white men and women who served in World War II, twelve of whom are on the Gold Star list.1,3 

As was the custom of the era, a separate plaque commemorating the African-American veterans was placed in the old Reading Room formerly located on the corner of U.S. 1 and Tomoka Avenue. After the demolition of the Reading Room, the plaque listing these seventy-seven veterans was lost.

An additional plaque located outside the Museum on the west side of the property lists the names of three local men who gave their lives in service to our country in World War I.
