Webb appointed new Hawkins Co. Historian

“I’ve been collecting Hawkins County historical items, books, photographs, manuscript items, virtually all of my life,” Webb said. “I’ve got over 25,000 items, which I’m in the process of transferring to a Knoxville library because there’s no entity in Rogersville that could properly care for it or purchase it. I can’t really afford to give it away. It’s basically my life savings.”
