South Pittsburg Heritage Museum
The South Pittsburg Historic Preservation Society museum has moved to a new location at 316 Cedar Avenue just down the street from the historic Cameron-Patton Hotel building, our museum's previous home. The museum features displays of hundreds of historic items of local importance. Old photographs of local people and buildings, an antique gas range made in South Pittsburg in the 1920s, cast iron cookware, also locally made, are all represented in our museum along with other locally made items. We have reseach materials also available for viewing.
Most items are either loaned or donated to our Society to help educate museum visitors of our city's rich history. We also have historic items displayed from some of our neighboring communities.
The museum is open to the public free of charge on Fridays and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon or by appointment on other days.
If you would like more information or have an item you would like to donate or loan us you may contact the Society at [email protected] or call us at 1-423-837-8714 and ask for Bob, or 837-8327, and ask for Carolyn. We look forward to your visit. See more images by clicking here for our Facebook page.
