Griffin Museum

The Griffin Museum is located upstairs in the Welcome Center and contains an impressive array of Griffin artifacts and memorabilia dating from as far back as the mid-1800’s.

The Doc Holliday Museum, representing Griffin’s legendary son, has a small display in the Griffin Museum. A much larger collection is on display at the Museum on Lucky Street.

There are displays of medical, dental and pharmaceutical supplies and equipment, going back to the days of the medical colleges.

The cotton industry is well represented by equipment from the turn of the century. There is also furniture made from salvaged wood from some of the mills.

The police and fire departments have a display of old uniforms, log books and accessories. Even the Boy Scouts are represented.

Also included are miscellaneous bits of Griffin’s heritage. It’s well worth an afternoon to come discover the hidden treasures in the Griffin Museum.
