Museum of Appalachia – 2018

When you start a collection, you never know how things will go. Sometimes your collection grows so big there is hardly enough room in your house for anything else. Then what? Well, maybe you decide to create a museum to house your treasures. That’s how the Museum of Appalachia came into being back in 1969. It’s grown quite a bit since then. Tennessee Crossroads paid a visit to Clinton in East Tennessee to find out about the latest chapter in the museum’s history. Watch this and more episode segments of Nashville Public Television’s Tennessee Crossroads.
