Take a sneak peak at just part of our Museum in this virtual tour, or get more detail on this website.


While our collections date back to prehistoric times and  our building to 1916, The Museum began in 1983 and grew from a very humble beginning to today's outstanding collection.  The original name of the Nathanael Greene Museum honored the man for whom Greene County and Greeneville were named.  

The Revolutionary War hero never lived here, but received a massive land grant for his service to the country.  

In 2015, our name is changing to the Greeneville-Greene County History Museum to more properly focus on the local area that is reflected in our artifacts and displays.
