October 4-5: (Portland, TN) Tennessee’s Best Kept Secret – Portland’s “Days Gone By Museum” & Annual Harvest Fest

Days Gone By Museum – 122 Davis Street, Portland

From the moment I first saw this fabulous Museum, my first thought was, “why haven’t I heard of this special Treasure before?” I would say fully 80-90% of all Tennessean’s, even locals, have never heard of “The DAYS GONE BY MUSEUM” let alone their ANNUAL HARVEST FEST!

Founded by Joey and Kathleen Collin’s of Portland Tennessee, this Rare Gem of a Museum was and is their Dream. They wanted to build a collection that would epitomize the Ingenuity of Our Forefathers who through a great deal of “Blood, Sweat, and Tears” catapulted our Nation into the (114)Greatest
Country on Earth! Their Dream was to create an atmosphere for Children and Families to Learn, with Pride, of the sacrifices it took to give us the Blessings we have in our Country today.

Their Museum emphasizes this throughout, beginning with the hand tools of the 1700’s, while highlighting, emphasizing, if you will, the great inventions of the Industrial Revolution and beyond!

Under One Roof!!!

You will find at least 100 working, rare, and pristine Antique Tractors. (including the rarest of all tractors) You will discover Antique Wagons, and Buggies, over 100 Antique Cars and Trucks including the very earliest made to the Classics (Ever see a 1931 Pierce Arrow or Cadillac Limousine? You will here!) Observe every piece of Farm Equipment from: Hand Tools, Antique Bailers, Threshing (Harvesting) Machines, Combines, even Antique Fire Engines and Beer Wagons! A Collection of every Maytag Engine and Washing Machine ever Made! Did you know that they even have Washers with attachments to make Homemade Ice Cream and Vacuum floors! Also featured are 1,000’s of Antique Toys, including a working antique toy saw mill and Antique Playground Equipment! An Antique Photography Center is here, featuring many Field and other Antique Cameras plus a Developing Room where you can learn how the early glass plate negatives were developed. There are over 4,000 plate glass negatives here, many of the Civil War, and over 5,000 black and white photos of Tennessee from the mid-1800’s to 1953. See Antique printing presses and theater projection equipment and Hundreds of other unique and one of a kind Antiques. Complete collections of everything imaginable is in this Museum, but it doesn’t end inside, outside you will have a chance to see, and tour Vintage Aircraft from Private to WWII to Jet Airplanes.

In order to share together our Countries Bountiful Blessings, Joey and Kathleen initiated the HARVEST FEST in order to coincide with the ANNUAL ANTIQUE TRACTOR & THRESHING SHOW.

It will be a Fun Filled Family Weekend Affair that allows you to Learn about our History while enjoying Live Demonstrations, Family Participation Events, Live Entertainment, Arts & Crafts, Food Vendors, Produce and So Much More!

The HARVEST FEST will be held this 1st Weekend of October 2019 on Friday/Saturday, Oct 4th and 5th from 8am to 8pm each day. The FEST includes Tours of the Museum, Exhibitors with everything from Steam Engines, to an Antique Saw Mill. Watch while your kids participate in Apple Cider Pressing, Homemade Ice Cream making, Sorghum demonstrations, Corn Shelling and More!

Come and join in, enjoy the Festivities! Parking is Free * Admission is only $5 per person, 10yrs and under are Free!
