Tennessee County Ornament Collection
In 2020, First lady Maria Lee partnered with the Tennessee Arts Commission to select an artist from each of Tennessee’s 95 counties to design an ornament that represented that county. The original county ornament collection was first commissioned by former First lady Crissy Haslam in 2012. Those ornaments were displayed every holiday season during the Haslam administration. First lady Lee decided to revitalize the collection and give new artists an opportunity to showcase their talents. These ornaments will continue to be displayed each holiday season at the Tennessee Residence.
