The Kingsport Archive of History came into being in 1982, the realized dream of Thomas McNeer Jr. who tirelessly worked to create a repository for photographs and documents relating to Kingsport’s history. In 1994, the Kingsport Archive of History became The Archives of the City of Kingsport, a division of the city government within the Kingsport Public Library and Archives. It was decided that a name of the organization that supported the archives should be changed to The Friends of the Archives of the City of Kingsport.
