We have a proud history in Tennessee and across the state are many museums to mark that history. They often chronicle larger-than-life men and women and big events that shaped our state. But it isn't too often we find a museum that honors everyday, hard working people who are the backbone of the state. Rob Wilds found one in East Tennessee... the Englewood Textile Museum.
Rob Wilds has been a part of the Tennessee Crossroads family since 1993. As one of our most frequent producers, and the recipient of several journalism awards throughout his various careers, Rob finds that the best reward for his work is meeting the fascinating people and visiting the interesting places he encounters in his travels. A presence in television, radio and print reporter for more than 20 years, Rob is a teacher, writer, producer and director as well as an actor (with appearances in feature films, television shows and on stage).
