McMinn County Historical Society and Archives
McMinn County Historical Society and Archives was first established in 1959. Its object is to preserve the History of Tennessee, and particularly of McMinn County.
In the January 2022, McMinn County Historical Society and Archives underwent a great change in moving to a new building where it currently stands: 107 W. College Street in Athens. With more room, facilities, better internet quality, higher resolution digitization projects, updating the archives and access plus a host of awesome volunteers, MCHSA is looking forward to a bright future.
The archives are open 10 am - 2 pm on weekdays. The society meets on the first Sunday of each month at 2 pm October through May. Up-to-date meeting announcements and outings will be addressed on our Facebook site.
Our Current Officers include:
Fred Underdown - President
Tyler L. Boyd - Vice President
Joy Montgomery - Secretary
Steven S. Sherlin - Treasurer
Jason Wright -Correspondence Secretary
Joe Guy - Historian/ Archivist
Janet Cantrell - Volunteers Chairman
