Dedicated to honoring approximately1.8 million American military personnel who have lost their lives or have been wounded by enemy action, the National Purple Heart Hall of Honor was opened in 2006 to celebrate these brave recipients of the Purple Heart. Located in New Windsor, NY, not far from Washington’s Headquarters State Historic Site in Newburgh, the museum is currently undergoing a significant expansion of 4,300 sf. The project’s goal is to better highlight the personal stories of each recipient via integrated audio-visual presentations, effective lighting, interactive exhibits, museum-quality casework housing wartime artifacts, and substantial, large-scale graphic displays. In collaboration with ikon.5, Kohler Ronan is proud to have designed comprehensive Mechanical, Electrical Plumbing, and Fire Protection systems for this very space. The National Purple Heart Museum is under construction and is slated for completion later this year.
