Walking horse museum moves to Wartrace

Print | Front Page | Email this story

SHELBYVILLE (AP) — The Tennessee Walking Horse Museum is moving to Wartrace from Lynchburg, but city officials hope tourists will also make the move to learn about the history of the state's high-stepping breed.

The museum had been housed in a building owned by Lynchburg-based Jack Daniel's Distillery, but the displays and other items had to be packed up because the company needed the space for commercial use.

Wartrace Mayor Ron Stacy told the Shelbyville Times-Gazette that he is hoping tourists will find their way to downtown Wartrace and near the burial site of the first world grand champion walking horse, Strolling Jim.

The museum features exhibits on the formation of the breed registry, world grand champions and the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration, the annual show held in Shelbyville.
