Town of Tazewell
The first pioneers to explore the Tazewell area were the long hunters, surveyors, and land speculators. In 1750, Dr. Thomas Walker remarked in his diary on the lush grass, plentifulness of game, and large quantities of coal. The town of Tazewell, settled in 1799 and incorporated in 1870, was first called Jeffersonville Township in honor of third U.S. president and native Virginian Thomas Jefferson. Over 200 years have passed, but the region’s mountains and vast areas of pastureland remain unspoiled. Tazewell now serves as the seat and one of the most historic areas in Tazewell County.
