Welcome to the Charles Hall Museum


  The Charles Hall Museum exists to preserve regional and Appalachian history with an emphasis on the Tellico Plains area. Born in Tellico Plains in 1924, Charles has been a local historian since boyhood. Among the first white settlers in the area, his motherís family settled in Tellico Plains by 1830. His fatherís family settled in the area by 1908 and moved within the city limits in 1929. Charles served Tellico Plains as mayor for 31 years, as alderman-recorder for two years, as Justice of the Peace for six years, and as a county commissioner for six years. Showcased in two Museum buildings are his magnificent collections of historical memorabilia, artifacts, equipment, guns, antique telephones, coins and currency, photos, and so much more. Along with his collections, the Museum has acquired many public donations since opening in 2003. There are currently over 6000 artifacts and thousands of historical pictures and documents either displayed or archived for future reference. When heís on hand, you can bet that Charles will happily answer questions, tell stories, and let you in on the secret heís always known... Tellico Plains is a special place with a rich heritage and limitless possibilities.



  The Museum operates as a non-profit 501 (c) (3) foundation governed by a board of directors. Charles and his wife, Billie built Building #1 of the Museum in 2003 and Building #2 in 2008. In 2010 over 30,000 people visited the Museum. Many were school children on field trips that came to learn about our Appalachia heritage. The Museum is funded in part by a percentage of sales from the Gift Shop and Biker Shop that are located on the premises. Admission is free, but your contributions help ensure the long term financial stability of the Museum. Donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
