Children's Ornament Workshop
One of our joys of the holidays is the Children's Ornament Workshop, when the Greeneville Youth Builders help us trim the Museum tree with handmade ornaments from the children. Here's one young artist getting a helping hand from a familiar face.
We're open Tuesday-Saturday, 11AM-4PM. Regular museum admission is free, and donations are always gratefully accepted.
The Nathanael Greene Museum is proud to be involved with the new Greeneville Quilt Trail.
About the Nathanael Greene Museum
Located in historically rich Greeneville, Tennessee, the Nathanael Greene Museum takes its name from the famous Revolutionary War General. Greene County was established in 1783 - 230 years ago - as a part of what was then North Carolina. The Museum contains artifacts and gallery content covering centuries. Visit our 12 permanent galleries and 12 walk-through exhibits that explore every facet of the region's history. Take a walk down Main Street and see life as it was in earlier times. For those interested in fine furniture and the elegant lifestyles of some area residents, the Museum's collection of antiques, clothing and furniture, will illustrate the promise of 19th Century America. Experience early farm implements and the importance of tobacco as a cash crop, and see early vehicles including the fully restored 1917 American LaFrance fire engine. Our Magnavox gallery pays tributes to the thousands of Greene County residents who produced the finest TVs, stereos, organs, and cabinetry from the 1950s-1990s.
