Homesteads House Museum, Crossville, TN







The Homesteads House Museum
is one of the 252 original houses built in the community. It has been fully furnished to give visitors the experience of what the daily lives of the Homesteaders were like during the 1930’s and 1940's. 

Many of the furnishings on display came from original homesteader families including several pieces of furniture including beds, chairs and mattresses that were made on the Homesteads.

The house suffered a direct hit by a F3 tornado in 2002 and has been completely restored using hundreds of community volunteer man-hours.  It was the former residence of the Tom and Clara Crabtree family and was purchased by C.H.T.A. to be used as an auxillery museum to the Homesteads Tower.

The house is located two miles from the Tower Museum and 0.8 miles from the Cumberland Mountain State Park on State Highway 419 (Pigeon Ridge Road).

The House Museum is Open April through October
Admission is $4 for adults, $2 for children ages 6 - 12
(admission also covers a visit to the Homesteads Tower Museum)
and is free for children under 6 and C.H.T.A. Members
Hours vary, please call for more information: 931-456-9663

Each December, the CHTA hosts a Christmas Tour of Historic Homesteads Homes which features this house decked for the holidays in vintage decorations from the 1930's and 1940's.
