Tazewell, seat of Claiborne County, is a typical mountain town that has changed little in several decades. It was named for Henry Tazewell who served in the United States Senate. The town was settled about 1801. People in this county possessed few slaves and when the vote was taken on secession 250 were for it and 1,242 against.
