The Cotton Museum is housed inside the historic Memphis Cotton Exchange Building. Calvin Turley believes this was the ideal location to capture the history and culture of the cotton industry.
Turley says when people visit the museum they are stepping back in time to 1939.
As visitors explore the artifacts and videos, Turley hopes they will be amazed at how a downy little fiber wove such a powerful influence into our lives.
