Houghton County Veterans
The Houghton County Historical Society is gathering information on local Veterans as part of renovation of the Veteran's Room within our Museum. Information on local Veterans will be part of an electronic display within the Veteran's Room (planned for 2022).
In order to include Veterans in this display, they must meet the following criteria:
1. Have been born, lived OR died within Houghton County, Michigan.
2. Served at any time from the Civil War to current.
We would like information for all Houghton County Veterans, not just those who served or died during a war.
Thank you for considering providing information on local veterans to the Houghton County Historical Society.
