NOKESVILLE, Va. – The Americans in Wartime Museum held an open house at its “tank farm” in Nokesville this weekend.

The event was designed to showcase some of the museum’s military vehicle collection, as well as raise awareness and cash for a permanent home for the museum which will be built near the intersection of Dale Boulevard and Interstate 95 in Dale City.

The organization expected 6,000 people to come out for their two-day event, which feature demonstrations of military tanks, guns, and hardware.
