Take a walk into the past or perhaps down memory lane in the D.W. Correll Museum. You are sure to find something interesting, nostaligic and fascinating.


The museum consists of two buildings. The main building has a beautiful, painted mural on the outside of the structure. The award winning artist, Lance Hunter, was commissioned to paint the mural that honors the late D.W. Correll, the museum's benefactor and a beloved Catoosa resident. The brightly colored, attention getting mural, is 8 feet tall and 72 feet wide. It shows a glimps of the interesting collection of artifacts inside the museum.

The second building is for the vintage car enthusiast. It houses antique automobiles restored by Mr. Correll, and other items of broad curiosity and antiquity such as the historical Texaco gas pump. Several antique carriages are on display such as the 1904 Concert Stage horse-drawn carriage. There is also a collection of antique toy tractors, cars, pickups, etc. on display that were donated by Dan Ward.
