Grainger County Post Offices, 1803-1971

The following table contains all post offices known to exist in present-day Grainger, Claiborne, and Union counties through 1971. Grainger County’s list contains 90, some appearing more than once under similar names. Claiborne County’s list contains 104, and Union County’s 68.

The list was compiled by Mike St. Clair. He relied on two sources:

  1. The first was the source for most of the entries. That is a list of post offices for all counties of the state at the Tennessee State Library and Archives, with the original source being records at National Archives of postmaster appointments between 1832 to 1971 (microfilms # M1131 and M841). These entries say “TSLA” in the source column. You can access that much larger list of over 6,000 post office names at the TSLA Web site.
  2. The second source is the United States Geologic Survey’s on-line GNIS system, and it accounted for 12 entries that are missing from the TSLA list. Those entries say “USGS” in the Source column. The USGS entries do not include any dates.
