Native American Artifacts Museum
For the love of her fans Loretta Lynn wanted to create a special museum dedicated to her fans to showcase some of the amazing gifts they have given her throughout her long iconic career! This special museum was installed in her historic Grist Mill, which was once her original museum she and husband Mooney built in 1976. In 2001, when she built her new museum, this historic area became her “Doll and Fan Museum”. What is so special of Loretta is that she built this for her fans, and it remains a free attraction at her Ranch.
