Here Are The Oldest Photos Ever Taken In Tennessee And They’re Incredible

Whether you’re a history buff or not, you’ll no doubt be impressed by these: we came across some of the oldest photographs taken in the Volunteer State and they had our jaw on the floor. It’s amazing to have a snapshot, a peek into the past, a way to experience the way the world was so many years ago. We found a few from across the state, and included a few videos below that examine some of our most prolific cities, so many years ago. Take a look!
