Welcome to the Cookeville History Museum
The Cookeville History Museum provides exhibits, programs and activities that promote the history of Cookeville and Putnam County. The museum houses a self-paced, permanent exhibit on the history of this community, including a timeline around the building that begins with the first people to the area and ends with what is happening today. The front gallery is dedicated to local history exhibits, traveling exhibits and collection displays. Visit the Cookeville History Museum and let us share our story with you!
Cookeville Museums' History Hikes
2nd Saturday of each month; 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Saturday, June 13 10:00-2:00
Family Fun Frolic sponsored by Foglight Foodhouse
Join the fun on June 13th when we put out all the games and activities ONLY at the Depot! We'll have cornhole, checkers, sidewalk chalk, bubbles, ringtoss, lawn darts, and more fun than a barrel of monkey--we may have those, too! There will also be refreshments and a simple challenge or two for a chance at a gift card to Foglight Foodhouse--YUM! :P
The second Saturday of each month from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm, come HISTORY HIKE between the Cookeville Depot Museum and the Cookeville History Museum! Pick up your entry (and enjoy some cookies) at either museum, find the answers to the trivia questions along Broad Street between the two museums and have the form back by 3:30 pm to be included in the prize drawing! If you like, you can do both hikes (Depot -> History Museum and/or History Museum -> Depot) each day. FREE, family fun from YOUR City of Cookeville, Historical Arts Div. of the Dept. of Leisure Services.
***EVERY child will receive a free kids' meal from our GREAT friends at Cookeville Chili's Bar & Grill!!!**
