Building Cleanup

The Coal Creek Miners Museum Board of Directors and volunteers and the City of Rocky Top have been working hard to obtain funding for the remodel of the new Coal Creek Miners Museum building. Before the holidays, they applied for an Appalachian Resource Commission grant and applied to two other private foundations for funds. They are still waiting to hear whether or not they will receive any funding.

In the meantime, we are planning a Spring Cleaning at the future home of the Coal Creek Miners Museum. If you would like to help, plan on meeting at future museum (former Bank of American building located next to city hall on at 201 South Main Street) on April 11th at 9 a.m. We will work until around 12 noon.

Fundraising Events

Thank you to everyone that attended and volunteered for the Chili Supper and Fundraiser on March 29, 2014.  It was a huge success and we are already planning our next fundraiser which is the Rocky Top Bluegrass Festival on April 24th and 25th.  If you would like to volunteer to help, please sign up on our VOLUNTEER SIGN UP page.
