Established in 2010, the Magnavox Historical Preservation Association began in the mind of philanthropist Scott Niswonger, who credits his time as pilot for the corporation as important to the formation of several transportation companies.

Under the leadership of curator George Collins, the association has collected an institution’s worth of Magnavox products. It’s working to open a downtown Greeneville museum in the coming year.
