Crockett Tavern Museum
The 60th Anniversary Celebration for the museum on April 21st was a big success. Visitors enjoyed refreshments, touring the museum, story telling and music. The children had fun playing games and dancing to some 50’s tunes. Mitchell Bradley pro- vided the “Ballad of Davy Crockett” on his banjo as well as other tunes. The museum was presented a proclamation from Morristown City Mayor, Gary Chesney for the 60th anniversary.
The museum opened for the 2018 season on May 1st. We have received guests from 10 states and 2 countries. We had a class of 33 third graders, too!
