Established in 2010

In downtown Dickson, Tennessee, the Clement Railroad Hotel Museum, previously known as the Hotel Halbrook, is one of the very few examples of a railroad hotel in the state. The museum’s historical display panels tell stories about railroad construction during the Civil War, the history of local industries and other area community histories, such as Promise Land that was founded by freed blacks. Governor Frank Clement was born in the hotel while his parents lived there and managed its operations. Items belonging to his family and artifacts from Mr. Clement’s life are on display in exhibit rooms. This endowment will ensure the future funding of the Clement Railroad Hotel Museum.
