Bemis Mill Village Museum
The Bemis Mill Village Museum is dedicated to preserving the history of Bemis, Tennessee. It is located in an auditorium built in 1922 that is part of a historic district that was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1991. The building was designed by architect Andrew Hepburn, who was later hired by John D. Rockefeller to design Colonial Williamsburg. The museum is managed by the Bemis Historical Society, which incorporated in 1991 and acquired the auditorium in 1992.
