Tazewell Historic District contains residential, commercial, and government buildings that primarily date from about 1880 to 1930. The district encompasses most of the historic town boundaries of the Tazewell County seat of government and includes 145 buildings, 77 percent of which contribute to the historic character of the district. Houses and churches constructed before the arrival of the railroad in 1889 characteristically feature Greek Revival detailing. More elaborate Queen Anne-style dwellings were built in the 1890s. Commercial buildings along Main Street include the Romanesque-style Bank of Clinch Valley, circa 1900, as well as parapeted law offices and stores.
The Tazewell Historic District boundary increased in 2016.
