New Exhibit, Made in Tennessee
On view December 17, 2016 - April 2, 2017
Today's Tennesseans, while not totally abandoning their agricultural heritage, have moved into an age of advanced technology and manufacturing. The exhibit Made in Tennessee offers a unique opportunity to learn about the manufacturing milestons of Tennessee from the 1760s to present day.
Made in Tennessee: Manufacturing Milestones is a traveling exhibition organized by the East Tennessee Historical Society in Knoxville, Tennessee. The exhibition project was made possible through an educational grant from the Alcoa Foundation to highlight Tennessee's manufacturing story--past, present, and future. The grant was awarded in honor of Alcoa Tennessee Operations 100th Anniversary and the announcement of its automotive expansion project on May 2, 2013. Additional support comes from the Tennessee Valley Authority.
