In 1987, Warren E. Motts established Motts Military Museum in Groveport, Ohio. Originally housed in Motts's home the museum moved to a much larger building in Groveport in 1999.

Motts founded the museum:

To educate the public on the importance of America’s military past through the documentation, collection, interpretation, and preservation of tangible artifacts and personal stories of the men and women who served and are serving in the United States Armed Forces.

Motts has solicited donations of artifacts related to the armed forces of the United States. He and his staff also have collected the stories of U.S. military personnel. Motts Military Museum consists of artifacts from every military conflict involving the United States. These artifacts are on display in a more than ten thousand-square foot building. The Motts Museum continues to actively seek donations to its collections.
