Made in Tennessee: Manufacturing Milestones is a traveling exhibition organized by the East Tennessee Historical Society in Knoxville, Tennessee. The exhibition project was made possible through an educational grant from the Alcoa Foundation to highlight Tennessee’s manufacturing story – past, present, and future. The grant was awarded in honor of Alcoa Tennessee Operations 100th Anniversary and the announcement of its automotive expansion project on May 2, 2013. Additional support comes from the Tennessee Valley Authority.
Made in Obion County Exhibit is in addition to the Made in Tennessee: Manufacturing Milestones. Guests can learn about the local impact that industries had and continue to have in this area. Discovery Park of America is adding a section dedicated to the manufacturers in Obion County, including:
