The Seal of Claiborne County
1801

What it symbolizes

The Graham-Kivette House, built circa 1810, is the oldest home in Tazewell and one of only a few buildings that survived a disastrous fire in 1862. The house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and the East Tennessee Preservation Alliance has this home as #4 on the Ten Endangered Heritage List.
The Claiborne County Chamber & ECD Foundation have taken over responsibility for the property, and want to restore the building and grounds back to its original state.

Near Horton's Ford in Hancock County across the Clinch River is an 850-acre tract purchased recently by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency from The Nature Conservancy. The property features a seven-bedroom farmhouse that has been carefully restored and is scheduled to open on Earth Day, April 22, 2008 as the Clinch River Conservation Center and Retreat.
