The Granville Museum recently held the grand opening for the traveling exhibit, "Made In Tennessee," from the East Tennessee History Museum.
Created by the East Tennessee History Museum, the wonderful exhibit illustrates the transformation of Tennessee manufacturing over the past 254 years. The exhibit is located in the new Granville Exhibition Center, a new addition to the Granville Museum that opened on May 23.
The exhibit, which offers a glimpse of the state's history via displays and narrative, will be at the Granville Museum through Oct. 31 and is open Wednesday through Friday from noon until 3 p.m. and Saturday from noon until 5 p.m. There is no charge for admission.
In conjunction with the exhibit, Granville Museum is developing a permanent exhibit about industry in the area. The museum welcomes human interest stories, artifacts and related information about industries of the past and present in the Granville area and surrounding counties. Volunteer Diane Draper is leading the formation of the exhibit and can be reached at 931-678-4720 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Granville Museum is also currently home to the "Memories of the Roaring 20s" exhibit, which will be on display through Dec. 31. Other 1920s themed exhibits are available for view at the Sutton Homestead as well as at Granville's Antique Car Museum. Sutton General Store is also featuring the "Mayberry Diner," with a special Mayberry menu each day. For more information, call 931-653-4151 or visit granvilletn.com
