Garland King Museum

Joe Elmore tours a one of a kind museum in Shelbyville.

More Information

Garland King was Shelbyville’s well-respected Fire Chief for most of his life. But, he was also fairly famous for his own one-of-a-kind museum. One that he crammed with artifacts that he personally acquired. The collection reflected the history of the town he dearly loved. This is the story of how Chief King’s dream lives on thanks to the dedication of a second generation King.

The museum isn't currently open to the public. Call (931) 684-5322 for information.
