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.
The department’s Reading Room will reopen to the public on Monday, June 1st, 2020. Regular public hours go back into effect: Mondays-Wednesdays-Fridays from 8:00 a.m.-12 noon and Tuesday-Thursdays from 1:00 p.m.-4:30 p.m. Initially, in order to observe social distancing guidelines, only four researchers may use the Reading Room at the same time.
