The Museum Shop

Thank you! Your patronage, whether online or at the Museum Shop, sustains our efforts and mission! History buffs and casual shoppers can find a wide array of gift and history-related items in the Museum Shop. Regional crafts, jewelry, logo and children’s items, and a wide selection of books on East Tennessee and state history are featured.

Members of the East Tennessee Historical Society receive a 10% discount on shop purchases (contact us for the coupon code), as well as free admission to the museum all year round.

Visitors will also find information on historical sites, museums, and historical and genealogical organizations across the region.

All books listed are softcover unless noted otherwise. We will do all in our control to ensure your selections are available when you desire them, but items are subject to being out of stock at time of order. Our ability to stock vast numbers of individual items is somewhat limited. If a book is listed, in the online store, as unavailable please don’t necessarily assume this to be the case. Please call 865-215-8830,  between the hours of 10AM & 3PM Monday through Saturday, to check availability.

Do you live locally? We can pull and process your order for easy pick-up between the hours of 10AM & 3PM Monday through Saturday! Phone: 865-215-8830.

ETHS publishes Tennessee Turned: Earthenware and Stoneware made in East Tennessee, 1800-1900
