About the Archives

The Lawrence County Archives was formed in 1988 by the Lawrence County Public Records Commission and the County Executive to create an environmentally controlled and secure place to store old record books and loose original documents, to preserve and organize records, and to make the material available for researchers to use. The Public Records Commission and the Archives also play a major role in records management for all County Offices.

Our Mission:

The mission of the Lawrence County Archives is to house, preserve and provide public access to the permanent records of Lawrence County. We strive to make all records available to the citizens of Tennessee and other government offices in a timely manner, create efficient finding aids, have every record microfilmed, and to collect and provide access to other historical material that would be beneficial to researchers.
