Lewis and Clark Family Activities at Museum


Natchez Trace Parkway Ranger Jeremy Childs will present “Lewis and Clark: After the Expedition” at the Lewis County Museum of Natural and Local History on Saturday, May 6th at 1 p.m. During the interactive session, families will experience a Lewis and Clark-type exploration of the museum’s Discovery Center and will learn what happened to the expedition’s members after their triumphant return to western civilization.

This is the final activity in a series of scholarly presentations and family events scheduled in conjunction with “Reimagining America: The Maps of Lewis and Clark” a traveling exhibit on display at the Hohenwald Depot through May 6. The exhibit may be viewed Mondays through Saturdays, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There is no fee to see the exhibit. A nominal admission will be charged to view the museum.

“Reimagining America: The Maps of Lewis and Clark” is hosted by the Lewis County Historical Society, the Meriwether Lewis Chapter of the Southeast Region LCTHF, the Lewis County Public Library and Archives, and the Friends of the Library. This exhibit is funded locally in part by a grant from Humanities Tennessee, an independent affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Additional funding has been provided by Summertown Metals, Peoples Bank, Keith Vanstone, Hohenwald Mayor Danny McKnight, and Janet Turner.
