While we are currently closed, Historic Collinsville is taking this time to prepare for the time when everyone can come back and enjoy our beautiful treasure! Here are a few projects that have been happening.(I was at least 6 feet away from the animals at all times!)

03/16/2020

We are closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic as it relates to Tennessee and Montgomery County. Our top priority is the safety, health, and wellbeing of our community, its residents, and visitors. This is a rapidly evolving situation that changes by the hour and there is a lot of uncertainty.

Following the recommendation of state and local officials for abundant caution, Historic Collinsville Pioneer Settlement cancelled its April 4 Eggstravaganza. The Season Opening event for April 25 is being evaluated at this time.
Individuals who have already purchased tickets online will receive a full refund.

Montgomery County Mayor Jim Durrett stated, โ€œEffects from the coronavirus are having an impact on the world. There is no reason to panic, however, it is important that we all do our part to prevent the spread of the virus. A critical point in the prevention of spreading the virus is to โ€˜flatten the curve,โ€™ to avoid a peak in the number of people who contract the virus. We are taking steps to minimize gatherings of large groups and will continue to do our part to educate ourselves on doing our part to reduce the spread of COVID-19.โ€ณ

Sadly, we are cancelling the harvestfest. We moved the date for the storms and this week we have freezing temperatures and more rain (the mud from all of this rain is also a problem!) We have decided it is best to cancel and start preparing for the Candlelight Christmas.
Montgomery County Employee Day will still be recognized, but moved to the Spring opening, along with the Steven R Jones Pickin' Party.
