Originally chartered by the general assembly in 1957, the Tennessee Agricultural Museum now stands as one of Tennessee's best collections of artifacts relating to the pioneering days of Tennessee farm families. Located at Ellington Agricultural Center in south Nashville, the museum is housed in a former horse barn, originally part of the Brentwood Hall estate of financier Rogers Caldwell. Find artifacts ranging from early farm tools and equipment to household goods and machines once used by farm women and their children. The artifacts date from the beginning of Tennessee agriculture to objects representing agriculture developments during the mid-twentieth century. The museum is also home to the Tennessee Agriculture Hall of Fame, the oldest such institution in the nation.
