About this title


Beginning with a chapter entitled Prehistory,” this volume goes on to chronicle the Indian troubles and other hardships suffered by those settling the frontier, their early government, development of trade and commerce, travel and the coming of the railroad, growth of churches and religion, as well as education and publications, finally recording several pages of leftover bits of information under Miscellany.” This history of the oldest town in Tennessee was written in 1972, with financial aid through a Federal grant, and covers approximately the same period then under study for Jonesborough's preservation and restoration plans. The revised edition includes more than 100 newly added photographs and a complete index.

About the Author:

Paul M. Fink is a lifelong resident of Jonesborough and was the official historian of Washington County and a prime mover in the Historic Jonesborough restoration program.
