Welcome!

The Museum continues to practice "social distancing" as long as it is necessary. We also ask our visitors to wear a good quality mask. We regret having to insist on this, but many of our visitors are at high risk for the disease.

It's a new year for the Blount County Historical Society, and it is time to renew memberships. Dues are $ 15.00, and payment can be mailed to the Blount County Memorial Museum or online with PayPal®.


More about Honor Flight 2020...

The Honor Flight is now scheduled for this coming summer, but the Covid–19 virus could cause another delay. We will post further inforrmation here and on our FaceBook® page as it becomes available.

Fortunately, the Honor Flight fund raising was successful and the trip is fully funded, thanks to all our supporters.


New Year, New Displays...

It's a new quarter, as well as a new year, and there's a complete set of new displays. In spite of Covid-19, the museum is open. We ask that our visitors wear a mask and observe the 6 foot social distaning protocol.

Here are views of our displays.
