roane co tn genealogy research - don't miss the carnegie library in harriman

if you are ever in roane county, tennessee doing genealogy research, i suggest that you stop in at harriman's public library. though its genealogy secetion is small, it's still a good place to look for local information and to see one of our nation's carnegie libraries in what must be very close to its original form. a few contemporary photographs and a brief history of harriman, tennessee's historic carnegie library are available online at the library's site.

From Harriman, Roa...

the building is located on walden street, separated from another of harriman's early important buildings - the american temperance building - only by harriman's busy firestation.
