Scott County, Tennessee
Court House Records

This page was last updated 19 Apr 2017


The Scott County Courthouse was destroyed by fire in 1946 and it was thought many records were lost. Then in the late 1980's, records thought destroyed were found in the basement of the Scott Co courthouse.  Some exhibited water damage.   The Scott County Historical Society now has all of the old records in their possession and are attempting to restore.   Many of the less fragile original records can be viewed at the Society's archive building. Recent records can be view at Scott County Court Clerk's office.
