Camp Gordon Johnston

This Memorial Day weekend bring the family and visit The Camp Gordon Johnston WWII Museum. Located in the Carrabelle Municipal complex, we will also be open on Memorial Day to honor the memory of all our fallen heroes.
View over 4,000 square feet of war artifacts, rifles, photos, uniforms, a barracks room display, as well as a small theatre showing interviews with veterans. We guarantee you’ll get a true sense and feel of what it was like to serve here in Franklin County during those turbulent war years.
Be sure to see the U.S. Army WWII “Duck” as well as the “Jeep”. We also have on display a recreated WWII German Lieferwagen utility truck.
Entry is by donation. The facility is handicap accessible. Also, the 50th visitor on Monday, May 30th will receive a free tee shirtÂ and Poster showing the Headquarters area. You will also be given free CGJA membership for one year. If you have any WWII veterans in your family, you might want to bring them along.
Make this Memorial Day a “memory day” in the true sense of the word.
On Memorial Day, Monday May 30thhours will be from 10 A.M. till 3 :30 P.M. For complete hours on all other days phoneÂ 697-8575.
