Free Admission day-

Join us on Saturday, June 1st at Sequoyah Birthplace Museum in celebration of Tennessee Statehood Day from 10-4 p.m.  On June 1, 1796, Congress approved the admission of Tennessee as the sixteenth state of the Union.

Our 1809 Blacksmith shop will be open with demonstrations going on throughout the afternoon.  Come out and share the afternoon with living history in our 1800’s Dog-trot Log cabin.  Learn about Cherokee’s in the Civil War and corn husk doll making demonstrations. The Cherokee Friends will be here and will be demonstrating various Cherokee arts. They will be doing river cane basketry, white oak basketry, and twining. 

The museum is named for Sequoyah, a Cherokee, who could not read or write in any language, who perfected a system for reading and writing the Cherokee language so that the nation and its heritage would live forever.  All Statehood Day activities are free and also enjoy free admission to the museum.
