The Museum’s bi-monthly Saturday program celebrates McMinn County’s heritage through presentations, demonstrations, and classes. The public is invited to attend folk art demonstrations such as chair caning, woodworking, broom making, quilting, and more.

Scott and Muriel Mayfield Foundation, the Hugh M. Willson Family Foundation, and the Tennessee Arts Commission. Admission is $5 or free for Museum Members.

This program is presented on the fourth Thursday of each month.
