I had always wondered where they put the old one. Tonight I found it in the atrium of the Administration Building, University of Memphis.
I found this a few days ago at the intersection of Old Hickory Blvd. & Highway 431 in northern Davidson County. I had no idea the James Gang had ever visited these parts.

I found this one today on Highway 79 in Atwood, Tennessee. Even zoomed in it is difficult to read, but it’s a good one. The inscription says, “Governor Browning was born in Carroll County. After graduating from Cumberland Law School in 1915, he began practicing in Huntingdon. He commanded Battery D, 114th Field Artillery in France in World War I. In 1922 he was elected to Congress and served six terms, and in 1937 he was inaugurated as governor. During World War II Colonel Browning served in Military Government in the Belgrum – Luxembourg Mission and in Germany. Reelected governor of Tennessee in 1948, he held office until 1953.”
Over the years I have photographed more than 400 Tennessee historical markers across the state, and it is rare that I find one anymore that I haven’t already photographed. But today I stumbled upon one in McMinnville on Highway 56 near downtown that I did not have.
