We continue being about the business of preserving and sharing stories of Roane County's history and its people. The society publishes a quarterly newsletter, "The Journal," which includes interesting stories and photos contributed by members. Meeting programs are presented to enhance genealogical research and annual projects are completed to preserve an element of Roane County history.
