Carved out of Native American land in 1817, Marion County, Tennessee, has maintained its primitive beauty. The county grew with towns such as Monteagle, Martin Springs, Sequatchie, and South Pittsburg springing up on the banks of the Tennessee River, throughout the Sequatchie Valley, and atop the Cumberland Mountains.Today, it is home to nearly 30,000 people. In this pictorial history, Marion County's colorful and fascinating past is illustrated through over 200 vintage postcards drawn from the author's personal collection. This book was the culmination of a long-standing interest in postcards and Marion County, as well as a deep kinship with its people.
