Veterans Day at the Miracle of America Museum

You probably know that Veterans Day is coming up on November 11, but do you know why that date was chosen as the time to salute all of our nation's brave service members? It turns out that November 11 was a historic date even before the holiday existed, as it was on that date in 1918 that the armistice ending hostilities in World War 1 took effect!

The museum is open every day from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. and is located at 36094 Memory Lane in Polson. You can learn more about this great local resource by heading over to its website.
