Located in Oliver Springs, Tennessee, the Abston Building was built in 1915 as a garage but has served many functions central to the community since that time such as a bus station, a theater, a bowling alley, a church meeting location, and a snack bar.
In 2008, the Oliver Springs Historical Society initiated an extensive campaign of renovation and improvements to the building, so that it may serve as a multi-purpose community center and theater for the Oliver Springs and Roane County community.
Since 2008, OSHS has completed a full campaign of interior renovations and the building is now on the National Register of Historical Places and serves Oliver Springs and the surrounding communities as a historical museum and archives.
Lovingly restored the OSHS Museum offers a beautiful and unique venue for you to have that special occasion. Whether it's a holiday event, a small family get together, a theme party, church gatherings, formal affair or a corporate/office gathering, the OSHS Museum is a special place. For small to medium events, the Museum offers a beautifully renovated facility. All around you is beautiful hand-turned woodwork, inlaid wood floors, a separate conference room for meetings, luncheons, dinners or used in conjunction with the theater and grand hall for larger gatherings. The Stone Theater has cushioned theater seating for 116, a stage area and audio capability. A large brick fireplace stands tall in the grand hall.
