COOKEVILLE – Those who have been enjoying the Cookeville History Museum’s “Memories of the Cookeville Pottery Company” exhibit are invited back for a closing reception Saturday at 1 p.m.

“Since this is such a special exhibit with a great local story, we wanted to give the community one last chance to see the collection and hear members of the Lacy family share their memories,” Beth Thompson, Cookeville museums manager, said.

Attendees will enjoy refreshments as well as a panel discussion with members of the Lacy family, who owned and worked in the Cookeville Pottery and shared their collection for the exhibit. The pottery operated from 1936 to 1960.

“With our usual exhibits, we don’t always have a primary source close at hand so we feel extremely lucky to have had the input of several of those closest to the Cookeville Pottery willing to share their anecdotes with us for this unique exhibit,” Thompson said.

Admission is free.

The exhibit continues through the day of the closing reception. The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at 40 E. Broad St. For more information, call 931-520-5455.
