Military Room

    This room houses our collection of weaponry, although not all are military, all are old and collectable.  The room also displays many military uniforms, helmets and other military memoribilia.  The premier element in this room is a very large (9 ft by 12 ft) Japanese flag, our provenance for this flag states that it was given to General Douglas McArthur on the battleship Missouri.  McArthur then gave it to his Aide, Colonel Ted Beeman, who was from Jamestown.  Beeman then gave it to Bud Murphy for the museum.  We can’t prove it to be fact but the circumstantial evidence points to the authenticity of the story.
