“The Atlantic County Veterans Museum is intended to serve as a lasting tribute to our veterans and their families.
Through the collection of military artifacts and personal memorabilia we will share the contributions of Atlantic County
residents to our nation's history. We welcome those from near and far to take advantage of this historic
and educational resource.”
The Atlantic County Veterans Museum is located in the historic Daniel Estell House, adjacent to the Atlantic County Park at Estell Manor and the Atlantic County Veterans Cemetery. It includes military artifacts and personal donations from every war and conflict beginning with the Revolutionary War through modern day.
The building is the former home of Rebecca Estell Bourgeois Winston, the first mayor of Estell Manor and the first female mayor in New Jersey. It was built in 1832 by Winston's grandfather and remodeled in the 1920s to Colonial Revival style. Atlantic County purchased the house in 1993 and recently rehabilitated it to provide a museum to serve as a tribute to our local veterans and honor their contributions to our nation’s history.
