Pioneer Days at history museum

NORRIS, TN – Located on the beautiful grounds of the Museum of Appalachia, the “Days of the Pioneer” Antique Show has been scheduled for September 15-16, 2017. This antiques show features over sixty of the finest selection of 18th and 19th century antique dealers. The museum is located 16 miles north of Knoxville, one mile east of I‐75, exit 122.

Elaine Meyer, President of the Museum, said, “This show is truly a one of a kind event and is slated to be one of the best antique shows in the country. With the 65-acre Museum of Appalachia as a backdrop, attendees can experience the Museum which houses thousands of early American artifacts in their natural setting, and then have the opportunity to purchase similar items from scores of outstanding dealers who will be here from across the country.”

During the show, traditional craftsmen will be on the grounds demonstrating their various and centuries-old talents. The venue will also provide mountain music in different locations on the grounds while other areas will highlight Civil War-era soldiers and civilians in their period dress.

Tickets also include a tour of the Museum of Appalachia, a farm-village with some three dozen historic log structures, exhibit halls filled with authentic Appalachian artifacts, gardens, and farm animals in a picturesque setting surrounded by split-rail fences.
