Survey of Historic Resources

The survey of historic resources is ongoing. The focus and priority of the survey has changed from gathering data to trying to manage the data that has accumulated over the years. Grants are still given to communities to survey properties but the focus is now on establishing a Geographic Information System (GIS) system for Tennessee’s historic resources.  View the Tennessee Historical Commission’s (work-in-progress) GIS system.

Archaeological resources are surveyed by the Tennessee Division of Archaeology.
