Discovering the History of Nashville: A Tennessee State Library and Archives Workshop

UPDATE: We have received higher than anticipated numbers of registered attendees for our upcoming workshop, “Discovering the History of Nashville,” presented by David Ewing on March 28th. As a result, our Auditorium seating is at capacity, so registration for this event is now closed.

If you still wish to attend, we will add your name to our reserve waiting list, and if a registered attendee cancels in advance of this lecture, we will be sure to notify you to let you know a spot has opened. Email us at workshop.tsla@tn.gov to add you name and contact information to our reserved waiting list. 

Join David Ewing for a look at Nashville’s unique history through the Tennessee State Library and Archives’ (TSLA) historical materials and from his own historical research. In this free workshop, Ewing will discuss how to navigate the TSLA’s records to research Nashville history, and to locate information about your own Nashville ancestors.

The workshop will be held from 9:30 a.m. until 11 a.m. March 28 at TSLA's building just west of the State Capitol building in downtown Nashville.

Ewing is a ninth generation Nashvillian, lawyer and historian. He has been researching Nashville and his family at the Tennessee State Library and Archives for 20 years. He has previously served on the Metro Historical Commission, and the board of The Hermitage and Travellers Rest. He is a founding member of the TSLA Friends. His Facebook page "The Nashville I Wish I Knew" was selected in 2013 as the best Facebook website by the Nashville Scene's Best of Readers and Editors poll.

Those wishing to attend this workshop must contact TSLA to make a reservation as the number of seats is limited. Parking is available in the front, on the side, and in back of the Library and Archives building. Patrons can register by telephone by calling (615) 741-2764, or by e-mail at: workshop.tsla@tn.gov.
