Corinth Historical Society

The Corinth Historical Society is a non-profit organization founded in 1978 by a group of dedicated town citizens for the study, collection, and preservation of historical records, traditions, and relics relating to the history of Corinth and its people. In the pursuit of this, the Society conducts the ongoing study of local historical conditions and offers educational and social events of interest to the public in order to promote a greater understanding of the traditions and history of our town.

As part of this, the Society has established and maintains two museums to house, display and store artifacts, relics and documents pertaining to Corinth’s past….

The Corinth Academy Museum in Cookeville is open to the public on Saturday mornings during the summer months. View schedule here ›

The Corinth Agricultural and Trades Museum in East Corinth consists of the restored Corliss-Prescott house and barn and is also open periodically to the public. View schedule here ›

A number of Society research documents are also available at the Blake Memorial Library. Additionally, the Society conducts regular, periodic public programs presented by local and regional historians on topics of varied interest.

The Society provides a unique opportunity for community fellowship due to the fact that it includes in its membership people of all ages and all interests. New members are always welcome.
