Welcome to the official website of the Cumberland Homesteads Tower Association, a non-profit organization that is working to preserve and promote the Cumberland Homesteads Historic District, which includes the Homesteads Tower Museum and the Homesteads House Museum. It is our aim to preserve the history and ideals of the original Homesteaders by relating their story to all who will listen. We also seek to provide leadership and guidance in understanding and determining the future of this historic community.

Homesteads Tower

Homesteads Tower Museum

This landmark structure was built in 1937-1938 to house the administrative offices of the Cumberland Homesteads, a project of FDR’s New Deal. It is located 4 miles south of Crossville, TN at the junction of Highways 127S and 68.

The octagonal stone tower houses a 50,000 gallon water tank and a winding stairway that leads to a lookout platform at the top. Museum exhibits are displayed on the ground floor including photos, documents, and artifacts from the 1930’s and 1940’s.
