An Open Request...

We're always on the lookout for material to add to our web site. All we ask is that any submitted material be easily renderable into "cyber" format suitable for posting to the web site. In particular, we'd love to have your stories about growing up in Blount County, accounts of life in earlier days of the county, as well as current news about the accomplishments of Blount Countians.

We now have two genealogists/family historians helping us here at the museum. While they don't claim to know everything about everybody, they can provide assistance and suggestions to our patrons who wish to learn more about their heritage and families.
