Tennessee County Ornament Collection

County Ornament Collection websiteP03

In 2012, First Lady Crissy Haslam partnered with the TN Arts Commission to commission artists from each of Tennessee's 95 counties to create an ornament collection representing each county in the state's three grand divisions. These ornaments were on display in the inglenook of the Tennessee Residence for the remainder of holiday seasons during the Haslam administration.

In 2019, First Lady Maria Lee followed suit, working with local county mayors and giving 95 additional creatives an opportunity to paint an ornament representing their county. This new collection has been displayed in the Residence as well as Tennessee's State Capitol, and each ornament is available to view in detail below.
