Map of Trousdale County, Tennessee

This map and number key is contributed by
Walter Buckingham
in tribute to one of his mentors


A new professionally rendered map is on the way.

     The map and the key to it are the labors of Mrs. Laura Gaston Garrett.  She gave it to Walter Buckingham many years ago.  She was a researcher and historian.  We are proud to present it here in her name.
     Much of her work was lost when her home burned down some years ago before she passed away.
