The 200th Anniversary Of The Polk Home Through Dec 31

Through the end of the year, the James K. Polk Home And Museum will hold an ongoing celebration for the 200th anniversary of the home’s building. West To Prosperity: The Polk Home At 200 is an exhibit that centers around how Polk, and other settlers, turned the Tennessee wilderness into their home. A number of artifacts from the period will be available for visitors to check out, including a Conestoga wagon. To help further illustrate how these settlers lived, the museum will have re-created scenes. You can enjoy a captured image of life on the frontier, and how Polk and the other settlers made it their home.


The event will be available through the end of this year. The museum hours are 9 am through 4 pm on Monday-Saturday, and 1 pm through 5 pm on Sundays.


The James K. Polk Home And Museum is located at 301 W 7th Street, Columbia, TN 38401.


Full access to the home and the exhibit at Polk Presidential Hall is $12 for adults. Discounted rates are available for seniors, and children.
