AAA Editor Notes

Lenoir Museum is 1 mi. s. of Norris Dam on US 441 to 401 Norris Frwy. The museum is in a wooded area with a small creek. Operated as part of Norris Dam State Park, the “touch museum” displays memorabilia collected from east Tennessee. An unusual mousetrap collection and a restored country store are featured. An 18th-century gristmill and threshing barn operate below the museum. Exhibits include rifles, fossils, pottery, bells, arrowheads, Confederate scrip and Civil War newspapers. Of interest is the antique barrel organ.
Free.
Hours: Wed.-Sun. 9-5. Closed Thanksgiving and Christmas.
