Blount County has created a Records Management and Archives Department to help serve the general public and offices of the Courthouse and Justice Center. The purpose of the Blount County Records Management and Archives Department (more widely known as the Archives) is to receive and process both non-current, permanent records and temporary records created by Blount County Government from 1795 to present for as long as materials are needed.
The Archives will provide information on court records, demography, genealogy and history of Blount County, Tennessee. The Archives provides public access to all holdings unless records are deemed confidential by law. It provides local government a source material to court offices, genealogists, the legal profession, historians, and the general public.
