History of Henderson's Early Days, 1810 Census Available at Depot

The Henderson Historical and Genealogical Society put together a very nice book commemorating the town's bicentennial that is for sale at The Depot! The booklet documents Henderson's earliest days, including Richard Henderson's land purchase from the Cherokee Indians and some of the many "firsts" in our fair city! It's a great read and a great reminder of our roots!

The book is $5 and may be purchased at the historical society, the Depot Community Room and the Henderson visitor's center. Copies of the 1810 census are also available for purchase at the historical society, and a large reprint of the census is hanging on a wall in the Community Room. The historical society also has copies of 1799 Quarter Session Court Records, Early Census, 1792, 1799, 1800, 1810, 1820, 1830 and 1840 available for sale.
