Wilson County Historical Museum It is a double treat to view the unique exhibits at the Wilson County Museum because they are on display in the jail cells of the old Wilson County Jail.

Many of the items on display were brought to the county by covered wagon and all items were contributed by citizens of the county and families of early settlers.

The museum also houses an extensive research library to aid family historians in locating information about Wilson County ancestors.
