What Tennessee’s Major Cities Looked Like In 1935 May Shock You. Crossville Especially.

There’s something fascinating about a ream of photos from long ago – especially if they’re taken in places that you know and love. We’ve found a couple of shots from across Tennessee in 1935, documenting the lives of Tennesseans long before we could record their actual stories. Most of these lives have run their course, leaving only a black and white behind. What a strange, wonderful thing.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
