The Wall of Honor located in our museum. Scroll down to see pictures of Cornwall Veterans.
VETERANS' WALL OF HONOR The Cornwall Historical Society would like to acknowledge the citizens of Cornwall, Cornwall-on-Hudson, and Mountainville who served or are serving in the armed forces by honoring them with commemorative plaques. These plaques will be hung above Cornwall's original World War II Wall of Honor on display in the museum at Town Hall. Plaques (6" x 2") cost $25 and include the recipient's name, rank, branch and years served. To add your Veteran to the Wall please click here and complete the application. Our goal is to honor all Veterans from Cornwall, Cornwall-on-Hudson and the surrounding area for their service.
If you would like to pay for your plaque by using PayPal. click the donate button on the Home Page. Our new phone number is: 845-534-6131
We are also gathering information on the Veterans that are on the original World War II Wall of Honor. Stop by the museum (or call) on Tuesday or Wednesday to check and see if your Veteran is listed on the Wall, if so you may want to complete a form that will give us their rank, branch of service, dates of service and any other information you might have. A picture in uniform would be an added bonus to our Veteran's Book. You may use the application above, just make a note that it is for World War II. There are 684 names on the Wall of Honor. We have given each name his/her own page in our Veteran's Book with space for their pictures, military service and civilian information. Eighty veterans have been documented so far. We still have a long way to go. Stop by and see if your World War II veteran is one of those 684 who served.
