Each week on the Junior Curators blog, we travel back in time to a different place in Tennessee history. Stories may be about a famous person, place or event from Tennessee’s past. They will include things like priceless artifacts, pictures, videos, and even some games. Be sure to better understand the story by answering the questions at the end of each post.
After learning the story, be sure to share what you've learned with your parents, family, or friends. Try making your own exhibit about it, shooting a movie, or writing a story about it. Let your creativity run wild!

Hey, Junior Curator! A question you will be asked a lot working in a museum is “what’s that?” We have some quizzes to help you learn what item ‘that’ might be. Today we’re going to look at a few items you would have seen used on the Tennessee frontier (mid-late 1700s). So hop in your wagon and let’s get started!
