The Lenoir Museum is a “touch” museum and includes a diverse collection of artifacts that depict life in Southern Appalachia from 12,000 years ago to the present day. The early American objects were given to the State of Tennessee by Will G. Lenoir to be kept on permanent public display. He collected for more than 60 years, and his wife, Helen Hudson, joined him in that endeavor until her death in 1960. It was the Lenoirs’ dream tosee their collection kept together and displayed for public enjoyment. The Lenoirs strongly desired that rapidly-changing times not wipe out an appreciation of the hard work and ingenuity that used to be critical to everyday life. The couple searched for, bought, and stored away artifacts to preserve an understanding of that life—not just of the artifacts themselves, but also of the people that created them and put them to daily use. Many sellers thought that Mr. Lenoir was “crazy” to pay for items they had discarded in an old barn or shed. Numerous items in this museum would have been lost had they not caught the eye of the Lenoirs.

This cabin style home is the perfect mix of seclusion and convenience, as it is within minutes of Maryville shopping and the Tail of the Dragon. The covered porches (front & back) are ideal for sipping a warm cup of coffee while enjoying the sun's rays over the TN mountains or easing into a rocking chair on a rainy day to enjoy the aroma of summer rain. As you walk in the front door, the Great Room welcomes you with natural sunlight pouring in from the a- frame windows, and drawing you into the cozy warmth of wood. The master & walk-in closet is on the main level along with 1.5 baths, and the utility room. Upstairs provides 2 bed/2 bath and a bonus loft for a home office or kid's play. The walk-out, partially finished basement has a workshop, guest bedroom, & a private bath
