MUSEUM CENTER AT 5IVE POINTS

200 Inman Street, East
Cleveland, Bradley County, TN 37311

From copper mining to major industrial enterprises, Bradley County has always been a center for trade and commerce. Visitors to the Museum Center at 5ive Points can view products from each of the stove foundries, historic photos and advertising materials. Among the work on display are stoves from the Cleveland Stove Works that later became Hardwick Stoves, later makers of gas and electric ranges. Also featured are products from the Dixie Foundry which originally made skillets and other small goods before manufacturing stoves. It later acquired Magic Chef and took the latter’s name for its better recognition. In the 1990s, Hardwick and Magic Chef were both acquired by Maytag and are still in production as a part of the Whirlpool Corporation. Visitors can also see products from the Brown Stove Works, a local family-owned business that now produces the high-end Five Star gas ranges as well as conventional kitchen ranges. Metals manufacturing is still one of the largest employers in Bradley County, and the Museum Center at 5ive Points showcases the industry from its beginnings to the present, along with other facets of the county’s history.
