Responsibilities of Archives and Tourism

At the Sullivan County Department of Archives and Tourism, our primary focus is on preservation of Sullivan County’s historic governmental records while showcasing the history and attractions, both old and new, in our area.

Responsibilities of Archives and Tourism

 Patrick Henry once said, “I know of no way of judging the future but by the past.” Preserving our historic documents and buildings is closest to the very heart of the Sullivan County Department of Archives and Tourism, as it brings us a better understanding of who we are today. Without our historic documents and the beautiful historic sites in Sullivan County, we would often be reminded of ancestors whose names were long since forgotten and of homeplaces lost in time. Please visit beautiful Northeast Tennessee and enjoy our Sunnyside Trail! We invite you to join us in our quest as we preserve the past, share our heritage, and showcase the beautiful attractions in Sullivan County, Tennessee, truly “a Museum of Masterpieces, both old and new”.
