Karl C. Harrison Museum of George Washington


Founded in 1982 by Karl C. Harrison, a Columbiana banker and philanthropist, the Karl C. Harrison Museum of George Washington has become an important forum for learning about America’s first First Family. Through the foresighted efforts and encouragement of Martha Washington's granddaughter Eliza Parke Custis, family heirlooms have been lovingly passed down through generations. In the early 1980's, Shelby County resident Charlotte Smith, Weaver, a sixth generation granddaughter of Martha, decided to share her legacy with the public, providing the basis of the museum.
