About Historic Collinsville
The pioneer settlement opened in 1974 to give children a “hands-on” experience outside of the classroom about life from the 1840s through the turn of the century. It has been open to the public since 1997, recreating the past with restored historical structures, each filled with authentic period furnishings that show a glimpse of life before and after the Civil War.
Once at Collinsville, guests can stroll through a re-creation of the past from the earliest “first home” to the expansive Dogtrot House, a tobacco-drying house, smokehouse, church/schoolhouse, wildlife center, loom house, cobbler’s shop, teacher’s home and more. Picnic tables are placed throughout the property and a covered pavilion with tables and restrooms is also on-site. A visitor center greets guests and offers period souvenirs.
Historic Collinsville is open June 5-October 30 on Saturdays from 11:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. and Sundays from 1:00–4:00 p.m. Regular admission is $8 for ages six and up. Military receive a 10% discount with a valid ID. Special event admission varies. The property is open on other days and times for groups of six or more guided tours, rentals, weddings, or special events.
Montgomery County Government purchased Historic Collinsville from founders Glenn and JoAnn Weakley in 2018. The property is operated by Visit Clarksville.
