     Established in 1997, the International Lineman’s Museum is located in Shelby, North Carolina, and was created to preserve the history of linemen and the electrical utility industry. What began as
a small dream to collect and display a historical lineman collection has grown into an anthology of thousands of items with artifacts dating as far back as the 1880s.


     The International Lineman’s Museum is a 501C3 Non-Profit Organization. Museum rent, utilities and supplies are made through private donations from companies and individuals - most museum artifacts are donated as well. The museum is free and is open to the public Monday thru Friday from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm or by appointment.

     The International Lineman’s Museum & Hall of Fame is proud to recognize the hard work and dedication of linemen and electrical workers by establishing the International Lineman’s Museum & Hall of Fame Memorial Garden. The Memorial Garden includes a nine foot tall, black, solid piece of granite with the names of the Hall of Fame Inductees inscribed within the stone. The monument is located outside of the International Lineman’s Museum. The garden includes
a large ‘Town Clock’, a memorial ‘Tear Drop’ and brick pavers inscribed with the names of donation contributors. Individual Brick Pavers can be purchased in honor of, in memorial of, or in recognition of any individual for a tax deductible contribution of as little as fifty dollars. Corporate bricks can be purchased for a contribution minimum of one-hundred dollars.

     It is our sincerest wish that you participate to any degree you may choose. Help recognize those who have made a difference within our industry or compliment those individuals you admire, remember, or respect by purchasing individually personalized brick pavers leading to the Memorial Garden for all visitors to see.
