Tennessee River Museum, Savannah

4.3
#85 of 120 in Museums in Tennessee
Located in the former Savannah Post Office, the Tennessee River Museum is the realization of a vision shared by several local business owners after the announcement that a new post office was being constructed. Not wanting this historic 1939 building to be left vacant, these individuals envisioned a museum dedicated to preserving the history of Hardin County and offering future generations a look into the area’s rich archeological and historical past. Thanks to their untiring efforts, in 1992 the Tennessee River Museum opened its doors to the public, and since that time, thousands of visitors have been enjoying the exhibits and learning about Hardin County's past.
