Currahee Military Museum
Toccoa, GA 30577
Currahee Military Museum, in historic downtown Toccoa's restored train depot, is home to the WWII history of approximately 17,000 soldiers that trained at Camp Toccoa to become paratroopers. Located in the museum is a horse stable, built in Aldbourne, England in 1922 that served as housing for Able and Easy Companies of the 506th PIR before and after D-Day 1944.
History of 501st, 506th, 511th and 517th Paratrooper Infantry Regiments is on display for visitors seven days a week. This museum houses military history for the area's local veterans, Civil War, WWI and WWII.
With focus on the Paratrooper Infantry Regiment that trained at Camp Toccoa in the early 1940s. More than 17,000 men trained at the camp, which included the 506th, 501st 511th, 511th, 517th and 295th Ordnance Heavy Maintenance Company.
We are still researching other groups that were here during that time and after the last regiment left in 1944.
