Farragut Museum receives Dorothy E. Kelley Preservation Grant

The Farragut Museum is the recipient of a $1,000 historic preservation grant from the Knoxville Civil War Roundtable. The grant will be used to purchase interpretive signage to be installed on the grounds of the Campbell Station Inn property during Phase 3. Phase 3 renovations will include the construction of new entrance roads, a plaza, parking, a restroom and park-like open spaces, and are expected to be completed by winter 2020.

The Dot Kelley Preservation Grant was established in December 2015 by the Knoxville Civil War Roundtable (KCWRT) to honor long-time Roundtable member and Past President Dot Kelly for her many years of service to the KCWRT.

The Farragut Museum is committed to preserving the heritage of its East Tennessee community and features a remarkable collection of artifacts from the area, including an extensive collection of the personal belongings of Admiral David Glasgow Farragut, first Admiral of the U.S. Navy and hero of the Civil War. Housed in Farragut Town Hall, 11408 Municipal Center Drive, the museum is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. and offers free admission. For more information, visit townoffarragut.org/museum or contact Historic Resources Coordinator Julia Barham at jbarham@townoffarragut.org.

Incorporated in 1980, the Town of Farragut has top schools, safe neighborhoods and high development standards, making it one of the best places to live in the Southeast.
