Tallassee Falls Museum
The Tallassee Falls Museum, a part of the Talisi Historical Preservation Society, opened on June 7, 2013, with Bill Goss as its first director/curator and Myra Johnson Singleton as associate curator. It derived its name from the great Tallassee Falls, on the Tallapoosa River, where Thurlow Dam is today, and the Tallassee Falls Manufacturing Company, one of the early names for the Tallassee Mills.
Today at the Museum, you will find Tallassee’s rich history and culture presented through twelve exhibits: Native Americans (Muskogee-Creek), (?-1836); Pioneer Life (1832-1844); Tallassee Falls Manufacturing Company (1844-1900); Tallassee Confederate Armory (1864-65); Tallassee Mount Vernon Mills (1900-2005); World War I (1914-18); Black Heritage; Tallapoosa River and Dams; Tallassee City Schools; Dovard Taunton Art Gallery; World War II (1941-45); and miscellanea.
Donations of artifacts and memorabilia related to Tallassee, Tallapoosa and Elmore counties, and Alabama are needed and encouraged. You can donate items in memory of relatives, loved ones, and friends.
Admission is free and cash/check donations are encouraged and appreciated. As part of the Talisi Historical Preservation Society, the Museum is a nonprofit publicly supported corporation. THPS is chartered by the State of Alabama and approved by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
