Plans for a museum that honored all Veterans was a dream of Ralph Barrale (1924-2018) when he gathered a planning team, and secured a lease from the City of O’Fallon, Missouri at 410 East Elm Street. The former City Annex is undergoing extensive renovation by a great team of volunteers. This 501C.3 not-for-profit Museum will feature the stories of all Veterans that ever served and who ever lived in St. Charles County. Their mission is “Inspiring, informing and engaging the residents of St. Charles County to honor the memories of County Veterans who served the United States of America with patriotic valor” and creating a museum experience for young and old, veterans and patriots that truly honors our veterans. Here our military community will feel welcome, our children and grandchildren will engage, and our community connect. We welcome you and invite you to participate and join us in our mission.

Would you like to hear more about our plans? We would love to share with any community organizations or businesses from small to large! Please contact us by calling or texting us at 636-400-7698 or email us at info@stcharlescountyveteransmuseum.com

We welcome any size of contribution and will provide an acknowledgement and opportunity for everyone to show how they have helped make this museum a reality.

Veterans Healing Gardens  – $3,000

Our Veterans often express a need for a therapeutic task or endeavor that involves the entire family. Our Healing Gardens will allow families to design, plant and nurture 1 of 8 designated garden spaces. Our community garden club will assist with the design, planting and prescribing of a care program for the garden areas. There will be a Healing Gardens sign listing our partnership with our community garden club. The designated garden areas are varied in location and design: a 48 square foot flower bed, long flower beds along the building and the open garden area in the parking lot circle. The open garden area in the parking lot circle will have a monument feature to be determined. Our hope is a garden that has the power to heal and holds meaning for every family member.  There will be a sign at each garden area prominently displaying the sponsor’s name for 2 years. The sponsor will be featured on the League of Honor Wall, picture on website with sign and recognition in Ralph’s Reveille.

Veterans Theater—$2,500

In the middle of the museum between our galleries is our Veterans Theater. In a quiet room, visitors can sit back and listen to our Veterans first-hand accounts of their service to our country through first-hand video and audio stories.
