Front Porch to the Region's History

Geography defines East Tennessee as a land of mountains and valleys and with a history and heritage apart from the rest of the state. The East Tennessee Historical Society recognizes this distinctiveness with programs and exhibitions uniquely tailored to the region. Our educational mission is to engage the public with the message that history is important. 

This Day In East Tennessee History

  • January 30, 1806

    On this day in 1806, Tidence Lane died.  He was the first Baptist preacher in the state, and he became the first pastor of Buffalo Ridge Church in 1779, which was the first church organized in Tennessee.
