The Department of Records Management and Archives preserves the oldest public records of Tennessee in the state’s oldest town, Jonesborough. Located at 103 West Main Street in a yellow-brick, former bank built in 1915, the archive houses records to aid in researching family, local, and regional history.
A new project to plat the deeds of the early settlers in the area and place them on modern-day maps to show the actual location! The first land transaction in Tennessee in Deed Book A, pages 4 – 5 (after the Watauga Purchase agreement) in Deed Book A, page 4 and 5 is a patent issued to Joshua Houghton.
Two new historical markers in the county!
