The historical Park was well kept up. The part had two separate fees. One for self guided. Another for a tour guide. You cannot go inside the house itself but you could view the buildings around.

A nice historical site, well maintained and cared for. Small but interesting museum with lots of info. Pleasant staff and a great guide. If you go, take the guided tour as they are well informed and more fun than just walking around reading signs.

I had a new tour guide show me around. He was very informative. It was interesting to see the original house plus the new addition. There was also the lawyer's office, slave cabin, and various other types of buildings. Enjoyed the museum as well. Gave a good foundation of the area's history.

As a Tipton descendant, I had a personal interest in seeing the site. The museum was very informative and the site has been historically maintained. It is located against the scenic backdrop of the Appalachian Mountains. The guide was very informative and was able to answer our questions.

Guide was in a huge hurry, all I could do to keep up. Home was gorgeous, hated the traffic sounds when trying to imagine what it was like back then.

We visited this interesting historic site and learned some things of the past history of the area. We were showed how they made brooms from broom straw. It was cool and was a great place to walk and relax. We were told some of the history of and about the Tipton's and the Hayne's. Also they were making sorghum.

tipton-haynes is a very different place to visit in johnson city. It sets on a large piece of land and is very old. It is not however run down in any way, it remains a very nice place to walk around and learn some history. This place also has been known for paranormal activity.

Tipton- Haynes is a great place to visit. The grounds are a place where you can let the kids run and hike. The visitor center is an excellent place to learn the history surrounding Johnson City. The day we were there they were making maple syrup like they used to and they had a re-enactor in the cabin explaining life... More
