Welcome to the Blount County Memorial Museum
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 contributions to our Country.
The Museum has re–opened with a new interior, new arrangement of exhibits, and a complete makeover of our workspace! This, with the arrival of the Bicentennial Edition of the Blount County Heritage Book, has provided a new sense of purpose for the staff and friends of the Museum.
Please take time to review the events page to see what's going on in Blount County. Also, if you have a family or community event you desire to be listed on our events page, just call the museum or email the Museum with your notice (no ads, please).
