The contents of this museum of early America were given to the State of Tennessee by Will G. Lenoir to be kept on permanent public display. He collected for more than 60 years, along with his wife. Helen Hudson joined him in that endeavor until his death in 1960.
TVA devoted 6 acres of land facing the Clinch River on Hwy. 441 just below Norris Dam which provides a beautiful setting for the Lenoir Museum, Crosby Threshing Barn and 18th Century Rice Gristmill. This museum has something for everyone’s interest.
Here are some photos of the Lenoir Museum, Crosby Threshing Barn and the Rice Gristmill.
