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.

We have begun the task of updating the record guides to include cases and other documents found over the past two or three years. Many new court cases have been added, as well as other records.  Keep an eye on our website, as we will continue to update the guides for several weeks.
