There are oral history tapes as well as bound volumes and newspapers (1870 to date).

Also a microfilm reader/printer with local newspapers from 1875 - 1965, local county census records from 1870 - 1930 and hard copies of the Townsend Star - 1897 to date. See the State Bank of Townsend walk-in display and a rural electrification exhibit showing early gasoline/wind charger for a 32 volt system.
