Book Signing with Eddie Sherlin

Eddie Sherlin is the title character of the non-fiction novel, More Than Rivals, by New York Times best-selling author, Ken Abraham. Mr. Sherlin will be at the Museum Store to chat with quests and sign copies of the book. The book will be available to purchase during this time at the Museum Store. 

Eddie Sherlin and Bill Ligon grew up on opposite sides of the tracks in Gallatin, Tennessee. They knew the barriers that divided them--some physical landmarks and some hidden in the heart--but those barriers melted away when the boys were on the basketball court. After years of playing wherever they could find a hoop, Eddie and Bill rose as leaders of their respective high school teams. And at the end of the 1970 season, all-white Gallatin High and all-black Union High faced each other in a once-in-a-lifetime championship game. What happened that night would challenge Eddie and Bill--and transform their town.

Caney Creek documentary

The History of Caney Creek Village (1912-1943) documentary tells the story of a small village built by Tennessee Power Company in 1912 to provide housing for the workers of Ocoee Dam #2 powerhouse. 

The houses in the village had indoor plumbing, telephones and electricity. The village had a one room school house, a tennis court, concrete sidewalks and a two story hotel. The village was closed when the Tennessee Valley Authority took over in the 1940s. All that remains are the concrete foundations and the memories of this unique town as told by six people who lived there.

The documentary, created by locals Ron and Debbie Moore, won an Award of Distinction from the East Tennessee Historical Society. The documentary is 54 minutes long.

FREE for Museum members; Regular admission for non-members ($5 adults; $4 Seniors/Students)
