The Bartlett Museum, located in the Gotten House, contains historical displays that serve to help our citizens learn about the rich heritage of our community and its former citizens. In addition, the Museum is furnished with period furniture which allows it to retain that 'homey' feeling while one is visiting the building. Our vision and goal is and always has been to educate our citizens about the community's heritage and preserve that heritage for future generations.


The Bartlett Historical Society was established in 1982 to preserve the history of our city at a time when many historical homes were being torn down in the name of "progress" The Bartlett Historical Society is located in the historical Gotten House which was built in 1871 and contains historical artifacts from Bartlett since the 1830s. There are also extensive files on people who have lived in Bartlett since the 1840s.

We are a design and fabrication shop that encourages play in museums, organizations and brands so they may spread the roots of their mission. Play is a powerful tool because it tests assumptions, makes connections and establishes a positive emotional memory to concepts. Incorporating play (interactives) in your project can actually boost diversity, loyalty and engagement which will ultimately strengthen your mission.
