About the West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center
A refreshing Southern experience celebrating the music, culture and beauty of the Tennessee Delta! Serving guests since 1998.
Here you’ll discover what rural West Tennessee is all about!
We are located in the hometown of Anna Mae Bullock. you probably know her as Tina Turner. The “Queen of Rock” is remembered here with an exhibit inside the historic Flagg Grove School, her childhood school, filled with costumes, gold records and memorabilla donated by the Tina. West Tennessee is also home to the Country Blues sound and to pioneers such as “Sleepy” John Estes, Hammie Nixon and Yank Rachell. “Sleepy” John’s last home is on our grounds and open for visitors to peek inside.
Though our musical history is extensive, our region is rich in beauty and agriculture. The West Tennessee Cotton Museum helps visitors discover how cotton is produced and managed since the early 1800s. And don’t forget the Scenic Hatchie River and our three fresh water aquariums! This natural and last “wild” river in the lower Mississippi system is a wonder to explore. Some of Tennessee’s best hunting and fishing is here.
The West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center is also stocked with hundreds of maps, brochures and guides. Our trained staff and Hospitality Ambassadors are happy to help with directions, reservations and insider information about area attractions.
We are a place for travelers to stop, rest, have a cup of coffee and learn more about what West Tennessee has to offer. We also boast the cleanest restrooms on I-40 and provide free WiFi in our lobby. Inside the Center, you will also find our unique gift shop featuring handmade and regionally-produced items. You won’t find these items in other tourist stops!
We welcome tour buses and can provide guided tours of our museums for your church, school or groups. We can also provide small meeting space for groups and organizations.
If you enjoy your visit, please consider leaving a donation. Your donations help support the Center and its programming, keeping it free for others to enjoy, too.
