For today and tomorrow, we invite you to a showcase that not only spotlights the ingenuity of our community artisans but also contributes to the preservation of our rich railway heritage.

Why should I attend the TVRM Art Market? The TVRM Art Market is an opportunity to connect with the heart of our community—the creators. By attending, you not only lay your hands on one-of-a-kind handmade products but also contribute to sustaining the crafts that have defined our culture. This is a gathering where every purchase supports the dreams and livelihoods of local artisans.

What role does the market play in preserving railroad history? When you step into the TVRM Art Market, you step into a living museum where each ticket and purchase aids in the maintenance and restoration of historical artifacts and engines. The market is not just a shopping experience; it’s a channel to ensure that the tales of our railroads, the technology, and the heritage continue to be told authentically.

What can visitors expect to find at the market? Prepare to be captivated by the array of artisanal treasures, from handcrafted jewelry echoing the industrial might of the railroad era to bespoke artworks that capture the enduring spirit of the tracks. The market is a treasure chest, brimming with unique items that carry stories of both the artisans’ craftsmanship and our shared history.

As we strive to cherish and maintain the historical integrity of the Tennessee Valley Railroad, your involvement in events like the TVRM Art Market is instrumental. It’s not just about the commercial transaction; it’s about a community coming together to honor and uphold the narratives embedded in our railroad’s journey.

The TVRM, beyond its role as a custodian of history, is a vibrant part of the community. It acts as a bridge, connecting the past to the present, the artisan to the audience, and the railway to the people whose lives it has shaped.
