We enjoy going to the spring plant sale here. We have been the last two years. You can buy several varieties of heirloom tomatoes and lots of other vegetable plants. You can buy flowers and some wildflowers. There are also lots of crafts for sale and some demonstrations. I have taken kindergarten groups here for field trips in the past... More

This is a very nice historic site. Events are held here often. A city jewel. I don't go often, so can't say much. But I have bought things at the events, and have enjoyed them.

So much for so little! Volunteers stay in character as they cook, sew, and spin. Blacksmith is busy at the forge hammering horseshoes and nails. Games with crazy names are organized for children and adults. Music from fiddles and dulcimers fill the air. Of course, you can buy one of those new-fangled sausages that fit in a bun from a...

The Exchange Place Living History Farm is the best place to visit in Kingsport. Their volunteers interpret mid-19th Century farm life as they take you into buildings that are almost 200 years old. But it is still a working farm, with animals and an active garden. Be sure to visit during their festivals (5 each year) and on weekend afternoons... More

Exchange Place is so interesting. It's like stepping back into history. P. Buckley Moss was so impressed that she made a painting of it. Suitable and enjoyable for all ages.

A very educational place to take the kids and have fun. Entrance is only $1.00 (.50 for kids). The site has animals, gardens and very historical buildings.

A restoration of our past to the days of stage coach (where horses were exchanged to stay fresh) and money was exchanged back when each state printed its own. The cabin, barn, school room, spring and springhouse, remain vibrant and active.
