 Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum Trust, Inc. is responsible for one of the only memorials in the United States dedicated solely to all of our military personnel, regardless of their branch of service, status, era or conflict. Our mission is to preserve a lasting tribute to those men and women who unselfishly gave of themselves in serving their country, particularly during the American's conflicts. Through educational outreach and programs supporting our veterans, we promote the significance of the facility to the community as a living memorial, an educational asset and cultural treasure. Conceived by the Allegheny County Posts of the Grand Army of the Republic, Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall opened its doors in October 1910. Since 2000, we have brought about a rebirth to this aged structure when its trustees took it to nonprofit status. Today, we continue to improve, enhance and create a sustainability program helping us carry our mission into the future.
