Cheatham County's Archivist Completes TSLAI Certification


June 28, 2021


Cheatham County's Archivist Walter Pitt has successful completed the Tennessee State Library and Archives Institute three-year certified archives manager course. The graduation ceremony was held this week at the new Tennessee State Library and Archives building in downtown Nashville.


“My experience at the Archives Institute has been wonderful,” said Archivist Pitt. “The knowledge I received from the staff at TSLA has been invaluable when it comes to doing my work.”


Pitt is a life-long Ashland City resident and was named to head up Cheatham County’s archives when the department was created three years ago by Mayor Kerry McCarver and approved by the Cheatham County Commission.


“I cannot think of a more qualified, better individual to be charged with the huge task and responsibility of keeping county records and artifacts not only for today, but for generations to come. Cheatham County is fortunate to have someone of Walter’s ability and love for county history to be our first archivist and he has set a high bar and standards for future keepers of county history and archives,” said Mayor McCarver.


The Cheatham County Archives is located on the lower level of the Cheatham County Library at 188 John Mayfield Drive, Ashland City. For more information go archives@cheathamcountytn.gov.
