The Military Road Museum of Lavaca was founded in the 1990s by late Woody Green. Mr. Green wanted to protect and preserve the history of his hometown of Lavaca. Starting out in a borrowed room in the Lavaca School System, the collections soon outgrew the one room where it was housed. The City of Lavaca graciously allowed the museum to be housed on Main Street in the former Dayton Brewer Drug Store buiding.
In 2005, Woody took a step back and asked Jack James to be the new curator of the museum. Jack and Woody have worked to create a home for local artifacts of interest from the local citizens who have been so kind to loan or donate many wonderful historical pieces.
Woody Green passed away in 2011 from cancer. This museum is dedicated to keeping his dream alive.
