Manchester, the seat of Coffee County, Tennessee, was established in 1836 and named after Manchester, England. The town is located midway between Nashville and Chattanooga and sits on the Highland Rim at the foot of the Cumberland Plateau, where the two forks of the Duck River converge at Old Stone Fort State Archaeological Park. This book is a compilation of vintage postcards highlighting the area's downtown, businesses, and natural riches from the early 1900s to the 1970s as it became a favorite destination for Highway 41 travelers.
