The Cordell Hull Birthplace
& Museum State Park
There is more than just a passing connection
between the two Tennessee Nobel Peace Prize winners.
In 1989-90 Al Gore, Jr. mentioned in
a speech that Cordell Hull had been a great influence in his life. A
member of the Friends of Cordell Hull was at the event and approached
Senator Gore with the news that Cordell Hull's memorabelia was in dire
need of conservation and asked what could be done. With Senator Gore's
help a museum housing Cordell Hull's world class collection was built
and is now Cordell Hull Birthplace State Park. Senator Al Gore, Sr.
sat on an advisory board for the Friends of Cordell Hull.
Museum Hours - Monday through Sunday
April - October: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM
November - March: 9:00AM-4:00PM
Hull was appointed Secretary of State by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1933
and served until 1944, longer than any other secretary. He was given the sobriquet
"Father of the United Nations" by Roosevelt. In 1945 he was awarded
the Nobel Prize for Peace for his role in establishing the United Nations.
Cordell Hull Birthplace and Museum is located just a few miles west
of Byrdstown and is filled with memorabilia of Hull's life and times.
It is 1.5 miles off Hwy. 111 on State Route 325. At Byrdstown, you'll
find a quaint public square with some interesting buildings and shops,
good country dining and nearby antiquing. Beautiful Dale Hollow Lake
is nearby with many long-established marinas.
