The license plate design was sponsored in the General Assembly by State Rep. Rebecca Alexander, R-Jonesborough, and will go into production once 1,000 pre-orders have been made. For now, those interested in the license plate can vote on which of three designs they want for the plate, two depicting the courthouse and one with the historic Chester Inn. Members of the Heritage Alliance and Jonesborough Genealogical Society will then pick one of the designs based on votes and public comments. The city of Franklin also has its own license plate that benefits Historic Franklin.
