“Friends meet in a WPA building: museum/club”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2012

We love this place: new and old Marines gather here to exchange stories, build community, share a drink and build a very interesting museum on the history of the Marine Corps.
I learned about the story of local WWII hero Gino Merli (the town of Peckville, PA named a street after him).

When we left, I looked at the building and lo, it's WPA built (1936 or 1937).
