Grand Army of the Republic
Memorial Museum Tour
58 Andrew Street, Lynn, MA, 01901
The Grand Army of the Republic Memorial Museum built in 1885 is not only on the National Register of Historic Places, but is likely the largest G.A.R. building in the United States. Among its many surprises is the jaw-dropping Victorian Grand Hall with 1243 photos of Civil War veterans. Among the attractions is the last Civil War Confederate flag to fly over Richmond, VA, given to Lynn civil war veterans as a token of friendship, and documents signed by Abraham Lincoln. The G.A.R. also exhibits WWII and Spanish War artifacts. Step into a time warp and experience some of the great treasures, photographs of bygone centuries, and learn why The Grand Army of the Republic was one of the most influential movements in American history.
