Tennessee Historical Society

Welcome to the Tennessee Historical Society’s temporary website!

Our brand new site will launch in January 2017


Founded in 1849, the Tennessee Historical Society is a nonprofit, membership-based organization dedicated to preserving and promoting the history of Tennessee while telling the stories of all Tennesseans. The THS publishes the Tennessee Historical Quarterly and The Tennessee Encyclopedia, presents programs for adults, and produces Tennessee History Day, a competition for students grades six through twelve. The THS also owns a significant collection of documents and artifacts housed at the Tennessee State Museum and the Tennessee State Library and Archives.
