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.
