Connellsville Canteen

The Connellsville Canteen pays tribute to over 800 volunteer women who served some 600,000 troops during World War II. Nestled in a reconstructed Baltimore and Ohio Railroad 1800’s-style train station, the building houses a café serving delicious breakfasts and lunches, a WWII museum and an internationally-lauded model railroad display. The museum features many one-of-a-kind historic artifacts and tells the story of Fayette County’s contribution to the war effort. The model railroad display, built by Harry Clark from scratch, measures an expansive 55’ by 25’ and was rated the best handmade display in America by Railroader Magazine. The Connellsville Canteen was featured on the Travel Channel’s “Mysteries at the Museum” and won a Downtown Pennsylvania state asset enhancement award. The museum and display are free. The café includes indoor seating and an outdoor patio area. The Connellsville Canteen is bike-friendly and sits only a few blocks from the Great Allegheny Passage in the heart of Connellsville.
