The African American Military History Museum in Downtown Hattiesburg is located inside a former 1940s USO Club. In 2009, the Neighborhood Association, the City of Hattiesburg and the Hattiesburg Convention Commission worked to restore the building and its artifacts as a world-class Museum.
The beloved African American Military History Museum in Downtown Hattiesburg suffered significant damage as a result of a tornado in 2013, but hope was not lost and history was not erased as the Museum reopened its doors just one year later. It is currently the only surviving USO built exclusively for African American soldiers and in 2003 was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
