Pioneer Hall Museum

We take public education for granted now a days, but that was not the case back in the 1880s. Thanks to the efforts of northern missionaries, Pleasant Hill Academy became one of the few educational bright spots in Tennessee. Ed Jones recently toured one of the school’s original buildings, which is now a museum that pays tribute to life and learning on the plateau 140 years ago. Join Nashville Public Television’s Tennessee Crossroads to find out more.
