Some folks may remember how Jacksboro looked about 70 years ago.

JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – On this Throwback Thursday, here’s a look down Main Street, Jacksboro, Tennessee from back in the 1950s; looking south near the corner of Main and Liberty Street. 

If you look really closely, you can see a second red light down near the courthouse at the corner of Main and Kentucky Street. All the structures in the foreground before Liberty Street are now gone. The Federal Building and post office are now on the right, and the near left is part of Jacksboro First Baptist Church. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 10/06/2022-6AM)
