Senator Joey Hensley, Representative Clay Doggett and Secretary of State Tre Hargett supported the Giles County Archives with a $3,673 archival grant administered through the Tennessee State Library & Archives for historical records shelving November 7th, 2023.

 “The Giles County Archives contain an incredible collection of documents and records that tell the story of our community,” said Representative Doggett. “These funds will help ensure these irreplaceable items are accessible for future generations to learn from.

These archival grants, which are used to support local archive development across the state, are funded by the Tennessee General Assembly and administered by the Tennessee State Library & Archives, a division of the Department of State.
