Preserving history, particularly the family history, was an important part of the life of Stonewall Jackson Van Hook Jr., the former Oliver Springs doctor known by “S.J.”
“Dad was kind of a family historian,” said Joe Van Hook, Oliver Springs city judge and recorder.
Now, part of the family history he’s preserved has been donated to the Tennessee State Museum, which is showcasing part of those items in Tennessee: A People’s Legacy, an exhibit paying homage to the residents that contributed to the state’s rich history.
