Heritage Alliance

Though the Heritage Alliance of Northwest Tennessee and Southwest Virginia only began in 2001, it actually has a much longer history. The present organization resulted from a merger of three previously existing organizations, each of which was dedicated to different aspects of historic preservation and heritage education. These organizations were the Jonesborough Civic Trust, the Jonesborough/Washington County History Museum, and the Historic Jonesborough Foundation. Each of these organizations dates back to the 1970s. The present Heritage Alliance, with headquarters in the historic Duncan House in Jonesborough, maintains important aspects of each of these prior organizations while increasing efficiency and avoiding duplication of effort. Our expanded mission now recognizes the role we play, not only in Jonesborough and Washington County, but also in the wider region.
