The Hardin County Historical Society will publish material that touches on Hardin County, Tennessee. Material from other counties and areas will be published only if there is a connection to Hardin County within the article or contains genealogical information pertinent to any family that lives or lived in the county. 


Queries are limited only by space availability. There is no limit to the number of words used and there is no charge for queries from either members or non-members. 


The Hardin County Historical Society maintains books and exchange copies in the Savannah Library. These are kept in the Tennessee Room. Donations of historical and genealogical books are encouraged. These donations are tax deductible.  


Exchanges of newsletters and periodicals of a historical or genealogical nature are welcomed.  


The society does no genealogical research for individuals since we do not maintain a full time staff. We will try to answer questions of a genealogical or historical nature if time permits.

Editorial Policy

The Hardin County Historical Society was chartered Sept. 19, 1972 as a non-profit organization.  Annual dues are as follows:

Regular Membership $20.00

Each membership in the Hardin County Historical Society entitles the member to one issue of the Hardin County Historian (ISSN 8755-6073). Membership also entitles one to vote on HCHS affairs and hold office.

The Historian emphasizes unpublished, primary source material of Hardin County historical or genealogical content. Manuscripts submitted for publication are judged for factual accuracy, style, clarity of thought, sources used and for appeal to members. Full documentation should be submitted where possible.

Hardin County Information Needed

The Hardin County Historian needs information to be published in forthcoming issues. Of particular interest is old Bible records (either photocopy of the original or extracted information).

If you have an unpublished family history that could be serialized in the quarterly or just a short sketch of an early Hardin County family or person, the Historian would like to consider this for publication.

Old photographs of significant events or places in Hardin County are most welcome. Photographs of early pioneers are also sought.

Family groups of earlier Hardin County families are needed. The families before 1850 are particularly desired.

If you have published a book with Hardin County information and would like a review of this, please send this to the HCHS. A review will made in the Historian and the book will be publicized for two issues. Any book donated will be kept in the Hardin County Library.

Any of the information above can also be recieved as email, and email attachments. Send to Ronney R. Brewington
