About The Farragut Museum

    The Farragut Museum is a treasure chest of artifacts and photographs, which tell the history of the Farragut and Concord communities. One of the highlights of the museum is the Admiral David Glasgow Farragut collection. Admiral Farragut was born in East Tennessee on July 5, 1801. Farragut was the first commissioned admiral of the United States Navy and is best known for his statement, "Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead."

    The Farragut Museum is currently closed for renovations. We look forward to welcoming guests back in late 2024.

    Admiral David Glasgow Farragut was the first commissioned admiral of the United States Navy and is best known for his statement, “Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead.” This nationally sought after collection houses artifacts that cannot be seen anywhere else such as Farragut’s personal china, uniform ornamentation, family photographs, manuscripts, letters of interest, and a large collection of scrimshaw.  Admission to the museum is free.  

    Nearby, the Farragut Memorial Plaza features a life-plus sized bronze statue of Admiral David Farragut.  Dedicated in 2010, the Civil War era cannons are on loan from the U.S. Naval Yard, and included are historical markers with information about Farragut’s life. A Civil War Trails Historical Marker on the grounds of Farragut Town Hall commemorates the Battle of Campbell Station, which was fought on surrounding land on Nov. 16, 1863.
