Motts Military Museum

Central, Military, Ohio

Motts Military Museum was founded in 1987 by Warren E. Motts of Groveport, Ohio who established the museum as a 501 (C) 3 not-for-profit tax-exempt educational organization. The mission of Motts Military Museum is to:

“To educate the public on the importance of America’s military past through the documentation, collection, interpretation, and preservation of tangible artifacts and personal stories of the men and women who served and are serving in the United States Armed Forces.”

Originally established in the Motts family’s 1870 residence, the museum moved in 1999 to a more modern 5,100-square-foot facility with nearly four acres of land. The new building and grounds were given to the museum through the generosity of Columbus Attorney Robert R. Richards who was a former special agent of the War Department during World War II.

Over the next several years the museum grew in leaps and bounds. Donations poured in from veterans and their families. The museum secured many vehicles, military aircraft, and a Higgins Boat from World War II. In 2001, the museum broke ground for a new wing, and as funds were available the museum’s volunteer crew, many of whom were professional carpenters, electricians, and other skilled tradesmen, worked on the 5,200 square feet area. By 2006, the entire structure was completed and paid in full. On May 23, 2015, the new wing was dedicated.
