Tennessee’s State Constitutions Transferred to New Home

On Monday, March 1, 2021, the Tennessee State Library and Archives (TSLA) with the assistance of the Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP), with support from the THP Honor Guard, transported Tennessee’s three constitutions from our current building to our new, soon to open home on Bicentennial Mall.



Preserving Tennessee’s legal and civic history is among the Library & Archives’ statutory responsibilities. Tennessee’s three Constitutions, first written in 1796 and revised in 1834 and 1870, are the highest valued and most historically significant items in TSLA’s collection.

 
 

Learn more about our state's constitutions on our website, tn.sos.gov.
