Here at the Williamson County Archives our mission is to collect, preserve, and provide access to county records with enduring administrative and historical value. Our records date back to the founding of Williamson County, Tennessee, in 1799, and include multiple record groups. We also collect other documents of historical value and make them available to the public. Sign up for our mailing list.

History



The Williamson County Archives was established in 1993 by the Williamson County Commission. In 2006, the Archives moved from the basement of the Five Points Post Office to the old library building across the street. The new Archives and County Museum welcomed visitors in May 2006. Upon the retirement of the first county archivist, the building was named the Louise G. Lynch Archives and Museum.
