About Historic Collinsville

Historic Collinsville is a living history museum featuring authentically restored log houses and outbuildings dating from 1830 to 1870. The settlement takes visitors from the earliest “first home” to the expansive big house on the hill with separate kitchen, living and sleeping areas. Each home and outbuilding has been painstakingly restored to its original condition and furnished authentically.

On site is the Irby-Bumpus Wildlife and Native American Center, featuring a collection of prehistoric Native American artifacts and a sampling of the wonderful variety of animals that have roamed the ancient forests in the Cumberland River Valley.
