From The Greeneville Neighbor News

NORRIS, Tenn. -- “Days of the Pioneer,” an antique show and sale, is slated for next month at the Museum of Appalachia.

Elaine Meyer, Museum president, “This show is truly a one of a kind event and is one of the best antique shows in the country.”

With the 65-acre Museum of Appalachia as a backdrop, attendees can experience the Museum which houses thousands of early American artifacts in their natural setting, with the opportunity to purchase similar items from scores of dealers from across the country.”

Jill Peterson, publisher of A Simple Life Magazine and a nationally-known collector and purveyor of primitive antiques, is sponsoring the show, with the proceeds benefiting the Museum.

“The Museum of Appalachia is the purest museum of its kind. It is everything we antique dealers love,” Peterson said.

The show is set for Sept. 13-14, featuring 18th and 19th century American antiques from more than 60 dealers.

During the show, Civil War and Revolutionary War re-enactors will stroll the grounds, and historic demonstrations will be in various locations and mountain music will be heard throughout the Museum’s village.

Discounted tickets are available through Aug. 30. They may be purchased at the Museum or online at

Tickets will also be available at the gate both days of the show.

Admission to the Antique Show includes the entire Museum complex which encompasses 30 plus log cabins, exhibit halls, farm animals and heirloom gardens, surrounded by split rail fences and rolling open fields.

The Museum also offers a large gift shop with hand-made items from regional artisans. A small cafe provides “home-cooked” meals, featuring “fresh-from-our-garden vegetables” and delicious home-made desserts.

During this event, the Museum will offer a special Southern buffet prepared by the ladies of the Museum Café and served in Heritage Hall.

In addition to the buffet, local food vendors will offer country ham biscuits, southern barbeque, chuck wagon cooking, homemade ice cream and Dutch oven cobbler.

The Museum of Appalachia is a non-profit organization whose mission is to preserve Appalachian history through the artifacts our ancestors left behind.

The Museum is situated 16 miles north of Knoxville, one mile east of I-75 at Exit 122.
