Partners in Preservation

Sullivan County Department of Archives and Tourism
Located at historic Blountville, the Sullivan County Department of Archives and Tourism is highly dedicated to its motto: "Historic Sullivan... Preserve its History, Discover our Heritage". In 2004, our Archives and History Center, partnered with the Sullivan County Historical and Genealogical Society, began to officially preserve various groups of historic records, manuscripts and artifacts. The Sullivan County Department of Archives and Tourism is also partnered with the Sullivan County Historic Preservation Association who have done a wonderful job at restoring the old Deery Inn and other historic sites at Blountville over the past few years. As partners in preservation, we firmly believe in preserving the past and in showcasing our rich heritage.
