The Tennessee State Museum is proud to partner with the Tenement Museum on the Your Story, Our Story initiative. Through our portal, we invite Tennesseans throughout the state to share personal stories of cultural heritage, American immigration and migration through their everyday objects. During the exhibition of “Let’s Eat! Origins and Evolutions of Tennessee Food,” we especially encourage visitors to upload images and stories of recipes, cookware, dinnerware, ingredients and more that relate to your culinary traditions and carry meaning in your family. Whether your family recently arrived in Tennessee, or has been here for years, your personal objects and stories will help capture the complexity and diversity of cultural identity in Tennessee.
