||Founded in 1970, the Obion County Museum is
celebrating its 42nd year of operation. |
We are constantly trying to think of
new exhibits, and try to change our exhibits regularly. We currently have a
Wooly Mammoth skeleton on display.
The Obion County Museum has hosted
traveling exhibits, such as the Smithsonian "Key Ingredients" food history
exhibit and "United We Quilt" exhibit from the American Quilter's Society.
We are proud of our exhibits and hope
you will make every effort to visit us.
We have reduced the price of our
publication, A Time Returned - Pictorial History. Buy
it now for $20.00, or $50.00 for the leather bound edition.
addition to our main building, we have on site, a reconstructed authentic
log cabin and a one-room 'Little Red School House'. The log cabin and school house have already been moved to the Discovery Park site. A storage building
is also located on the property that is used to store artifacts that are not
currently being displayed.
The purpose of the Obion County Museum is to
preserve our past heritage, not so we can live in the past, but by knowing our heritage, we can
better live in the present and plan for the future. A fascinating look
back into Obion County's colorful history can be found at the Obion County
Museum. The museum boasts a variety of interesting artifacts unique to
Northwest Tennessee, from farming implements to clothing to photographs from
Obion County's past.
We are constantly
in need of support, both financial and physical. We urge you to visit
our Museum and become involved as a Museum member.
Our board meets the 4th Monday of each month at
7:00 PM. We would be glad to have you visit our board meeting.
