This former one-room schoolhouse attended by a young Anna Mae Bullock (a.k.a. Tina Turner) is now home to a collection of the “Queen of Rock’s” memorabilia. Saved and moved from Nutbush, a small farming community just outside of Brownsville, you’ll also experience what learning must have been like for African-American students in the 1940s through early ’60s. The structure also includes an authentic chalkboard and original desks and benches preserved along with the structure. Education was very important to Tina, and the exhibits and accompanying video interviews chronicle her memories of Flagg Grove School and growing up in Nutbush. While visiting the school, one can even virtually experience her last concert.
The Tina Turner Museum is an official location along Tennessee’s Music Pathways.
