The Museum & Event Center is Lincoln County's only public location housing artifacts from the community's history. The museum is located inside the Borden Milk Plant, constructed in 1927, and was donated by the William R. Carter family to serve as a local museum in 1987. Tours of the museum are provided free of charge by volunteer docents, and the event center is available for public rentals. As a 501(c)3 non-profit, the F-LC Museum & Event Center is administered by a board of directors and is eligible to receive tax-free donations for its operations.

  • Camp Blount Historical Park Clears Hurdle In mid-October the purchase of 40 acres of the remaining Camp Blount site in Fayetteville was completed. This effort has been in the works for quite some time, and the local War of 1812 Commission is grateful to the State 1812 Commission, the TN Wars Commission, and all the people that made this possible. Now, work will begin to turn the area into an interpretive historical park for future generations to enjoy!

  • Winter Wonderland Open for Host The Fayetteville-Lincoln County Museum will open its annual Winter Wonderland on November 14 during Fayetteville's Host of Christmas Past. Entrance into the Wonderland is $1 per person. This awesome feature of the museum is a children's tradition during our Host events. Model trains circle the room and pass stations representing each community of Lincoln County and features communities in the surrounding area as well. Proceeds from this event benefit the museum completely, and will go toward our upcoming facility repairs.
