Lenoir Museum

Started in 1997, the museum was originally housed in Lenoir City's early city hall building on Broadway in downtown Lenoir City. The Lenoir City Museum documents Lenoir City's past from its earliest settlement by Major William B. Lenoir in the early 1800's, to the arrival of the railroad at Lenoir's Station (as it was known until the 1900's), through the Civil War, and into Lenoir City's emergence as a city in 1907. The museum also highlights Lenoir City's commercial and industrial growth, particularly its premier industry, the Lenoir Car Works. The City's social, religious and educational development is traced, as well as its role in U.S. military history in the twentieth century.
