Featured Museum Item

Each month we will feature items from the Maryville Heritage Museum collection. This month we are featuring some of the Maryville businesses no longer in operation.

These photographs are of items in the museum representing old Maryville businesses that are no longer in operation. The museum has a similar display in the Maryville administration building currently. We are always looking for old photographs, business cards, matchbooks, etc. from old businesses.

The Maryville Heritage Museum has many photographs in the museum. Some photographs are often difficult to display in the museum for all to enjoy. We will be posting many of these photographs, depicting life growing up in Maryville on this page. The photos displayed will change from time to time. If you have any photographs to donate, or we can scan them for you, so you can keep your original, contact us below.
