The park is very well kept; the grass is trimmed, the buildings were in great condition, and the area was very safe for all ages. The nature tail is a great walk through the beautiful East Tennessee mountains and is worth the time. The buildings and surrounding taught some history I was never taught in school which I thought was... More

This Site spans a fascinating period of East Tennessee history. From early visits by famed botanist André Michaux between 1789 and 1796, to the pre-civil war social and political history, Tipton-Haynes Historical site offers a very personal look at the lives of several families.

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.
