The Veterans Data Project

One of the most successful projects of the historical society has been the collection of information on Campbell County Veterans. With forms continuing to pour in, the project has already produced dozens of binders filled with data on veterans from every war. Many people have attached copies of important documents, pictures and other information relating to the veteran's service. Several other historical societies are considering duplicating the project in their area.

If you or your ancestor served in the military and also lived one or more years in Campbell County, we would like to add your information to our list of honored veterans. Please use the link below to access the Veterans form.
