Little River Railroad and Lumber Company Museum

Today there are few visible signs of the massive railroad and logging operations that once dominated life on Little River. This past era is gone but not forgotten. The Little River Railroad and Lumber Company Museum in Townsend is dedicated to preserving and interpreting the history of life on the Little River.

The Little River Railroad and Lumber Company Board of Directors is proud to sponsor this museum in the Townsend community. It is our goal to provide the Townsend community, as well as all visitors, the opportunity of look back to where we've been, in hopes of knowing more where we're going.

This interpretive exhibit project has been funded by a grant from the Tennessee Humanitarian Council, a not-for-profit corporation with primary support from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The LRR&LC wishes to commend the Tennessee Humanities Council for their work enabling small communities such as Townsend to preserve their cultural heritage and history.
