Book Publications

     The Maury County Historical Society, in addition to its quarterly magazine HISTORIC MAURY, has sponsored and published through the years several books which have documented and help preserve historical knowledge and understanding of Maury County and surrounding Middle Tennessee and its people, activities, places, and sites. The Maury County Historical Society, through its sponsored book publications, provides an opportunity for our members, as well as interested readers, to engage with and enjoy the books that we have particularly endeavored to create by our talented members over the past 50 plus years. We have sought to select subject matter and applicable titles which represent different periods, views, and approaches towards chronicling Maury County and surrounding Middle Tennessee history. These books are distinguished in their documentation and interpretation of Maury County and surrounding Middle Tennessee history, as well as the places, people, and artifacts comprising that history.

     While copies are available, you can order them from the Society simply by filling out the order form with your choice(s) (click on Book Order Form) and then forward your requested purchase order to the address below.
