After Tipton County's servicemen and women came home from military service, they could register their military discharge papers or DD-214s with the County Register's office. Can you find proof of military service for your loved one here? If you have military documentation you'd like to share with the Tipton County Museum to ensure its preservation, contact us! We'd be happy to digitize and preserve your loved one's military service for future generations.
In many small communities, especially those isolated from large urban areas, the church plays an important role in providing help and assistance for people. In rural communities, the church functions not only as a religious center, but also as a social center and often, community members attend their "home" church from cradle to grave. If you have old photographs, church bulletins, history or other memorabilia or documentation you'd like to share with the Tipton County Museum, either as a donation or loan, we'd be happy to electronically digitize it at no cost to you!
