Traveling Tennesseans exhibit now on display!

By Caroline Voisine

The Tennessee State Library and Archives is proud to announce the installation of its latest exhibit, 'Traveling Tennesseans.' Open to the public now this will be the last exhibit featured at the Library and Archives current building. This exhibit features materials from the Library and Archives’ extensive collections and focuses on the travels of Tennesseans all over the world.

In this exhibit, we explore the postcards, notebooks, photographs, souvenirs and more from Tennesseans who journeyed beyond their hometowns. In this exhibit we explore a scrapbook of snippets from the adventures of everyday citizens as well as artists, missionaries and military personnel outside of Tennessee.

The Library and Archives is proud to exhibit not only its visual walled displays but also a curated selection of original archival material. Five exhibition cases will be filled with material from different manuscript and government records collections.

'Traveling Tennesseans' will be open to public Tuesday-Saturday, during regular business hours. 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. CT. Visitors can view the exhibit in the front lobby of the Library and Archives building, located at 403 7th Avenue North in Nashville.

The Tennessee State Library and Archives is a division of the Office of Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett
