Welcome Home Veterans Living Home Military Museum at Richard's Coffee Shop is a living military museum dedicated to honoring America's veterans, active duty personnel and emergency services personnel. The veterans who visit the shop play a part in the living history through their stories and help find, procure, and institute the artifacts and memorabilia displayed in the museum.  Come join us for coffee, share, reflect, get inspired and become part of our ever-growing family.  Visit Us.


Everyone that comes into the coffee shop learns the history of a man named Richard Warren, who started the shop in 1995. With his background, Richard made a point of extending the traditional veterans greeting of "Welcome Home" to every veteran who came in the shop. Volunteers and a nonprofit Board of Directors are continuing his legacy by providing a place for all to gather as well as assisting veterans and their families in many ways.  Read Our Story.
