Our Story

Our Mission

The Museum & Cultural Center at 5ive Points is a regional history museum, cultural, and arts center telling the story of the Ocoee Region.  It is a place for members of the community to gather, learn, and grow by connecting with our past and present while dreaming about the future.  Whether through a history or art exhibit, creative workshop, music or cultural event, or one of our many children’s education programs, the Museum & Cultural Center at 5ive Points provides a way to enlighten our diverse community through self-discovery and scholarship.

Telling the Story of the Ocoee Region

On March 9, 1992, a committee was created to study the feasibility of establishing a museum in Cleveland, Tennessee.

Six years later ground was broken for the Museum, and on September 11, 1999 The Museum and Cultural Center at 5ive Points opened to the public.

We are a museum and cultural center that houses exhibits, artifacts, and art relating to the history of the Ocoee Region of Tennessee, which includes Bradley, Polk and East Hamilton Counties.

The Museum and Cultural Center at 5ive Points features a permanent exhibit, The River of Time, which traces the history of Bradley County. In addition, five to six changing exhibitions are held each year that focus on aspects of the history and culture of the Ocoee Region.

Over the past 20 years we have become a hub of cultural activities. Our facilities are used for in-house events, creative workshops, music and concerts, art exhibitions and children’s education programs. These rooms are also available for the public to rent for private and community events.

The Museum Gift Gallery offers arts and crafts made by artists living within a 150 mile radius of Cleveland. Many have been trained at the prestigious John C. Campbell Folk School in North Carolina, have won regional and national awards. and been schooled in the fine arts.
