Adriel OK with tank museum


A proposal to relocate American Armoured Foundation Inc.’s tank museum to a former Hobart Co. foundry in West Liberty along Township Road 185 sits well with Adriel, its CEO Kay Wyse said Friday.

“We look forward to seeing things cleaned up and converted to something beneficial to our community,” she said.

“Contrary to rumors being spread, Adriel has done nothing to discourage these plans. No court injunction was requested nor filed. No petitions were signed.

“In fact,” Ms. Wyse continued, “after reading the news on Wednesday morning, I phoned the museum in Virginia to introduce Adriel as their new neighbor and fellow non-profit organization.”

The museum, with more than 118 tanks and artillery pieces, hopes to be open by Nov. 11, Veterans Day.
