Our museum has an extensive library of census records back to 1850 and other historical documents which details the early history of the Sequatchie Valley.

The musuem also contains a WWII Veterans Display of items donated by local families. And, a new Trail of Tears exhibit is currently being constructed.  Genealogy researches will also enjoy the many documents that we have regarding local surnames.
