We're in Our New Home!
The Museum is in its new quarters, just around the corner from our former location. There will be growing pains while we get used to the new location and its increased space. There will be a formal opening as soon as we complete the moving-in process. We are indebted to the Blount County Commission and the Sheriff's office for helping make the move a reality. There's still a great deal of work to do during the next several weeks, adding additonal exhibits and work stations. We now have a dedicated classroom/meeting room and a media room. We also will be adding information kiosks for our exhibits. There will be a formal opening of our Museum in the near future, so keep an eye on this page and our FaceBook® page.
We at the Blount County Memorial Museum are always aware of the sacrifices of our veterans and their families. We are honored to have the many veterans who help us with our mission to record and maintain the records and artifacts of these families and of their sacrifices for our Country.
Also, stop by and visit with us for a while; we're conveniently located next to the Courthouse in Oneonta. The Museum hours are 8:00 am until 5:00 pm, Tuesday through Thursday. Also, visit our Facebook page. We have quite a collection of Blount County family records and genealogies. Knowledgeable family researchers are available to assist visitors. If you have family records and stories, we would be pleased if they were shared with us. Just call (205–625–6905) or email them to the museum.
We have an active group of FaceBook® followers, and we invite everyone to drop in from time to time. It's also a source of additional information about the early families who settled Blount County, as well of the County's history and heritage.
