Backstory and Context
Museum originally was built in 1916 as Fire Station, Police Department and Village Hall. It now houses artifacts from the Village of Maryville's past. Donk Brothers Coal Mine #2 helped build Maryville in the early 1900's from a small rural farming community to a more viable village. However, when the mine closed around 1924, it was the local grocery stores that helped keep the Village alive. Much of that history can be discovered at the museum. Included are mining equipment, first responders uniforms, farming equipment, veterans and baseball/softball uniforms. Early maps of what the village looked like are also displayed.
