Visit Atlantic County's Newest Museum  open every  Thursday, Friday and Saturday 10 AM – 4 PM. 189 Route 50, Estell Manor (adjacent to county park and veterans cemetery) (609) 909-5859. Group tours available by appointment. Volunteers needed to assist visitors.

The Atlantic County Veterans Museum is located in the historic Daniel Estell House, adjacent to the Atlantic County Park at Estell Manor and the Atlantic County Veterans Cemetery. It includes military artifacts and personal donations from every war and conflict beginning with the Revolutionary War through modern day.

The building is the former home of Rebecca Estell Bourgeois Winston, the first mayor of Estell Manor and the first female mayor in New Jersey. It was built in 1832 by Winston's grandfather and remodeled in the 1920s to Colonial Revival style. Atlantic County purchased the house in 1993 and recently rehabilitated it to provide a museum to serve as a tribute to our local veterans and honor their contributions to our nation’s history.

In 2013 County Executive Dennis Levinson appointed former County Executive Richard E. Squires to serve as chairman of the Veterans Museum Committee that included veterans, historians and community members to assist with gathering, researching and accessioning artifacts and materials for the new museum. The committee received cooperation from the Atlantic County Veterans Museum Foundation, a 501©3 non-profit, to provide fundraising to support the creation of exhibits, displays and the preservation of museum items.
