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.

A look back to the early days of Kingsport. Exchange Place represents and has recreated a replica of where earlier travelers wound their way into this area. It's a historic reproduction of farming and buildings.

If they have one of the festivals there is more to see here. Otherwise there is not much to do.

I live not far from Exchange Place and have been many times for different events. The volunteers have done a great job preserving the site and keeping it well maintained while still keeping it authentic. They have several events throughout the year that are worth going to. If you just going to stop by I suggest checking ahead. They are... More

The Exchange Place/Gaines-Preston Farm is staffed by volunteers and is only open a handful of times/year. There is a fee--50 cents for children; 1 dollar for adults. Since it is a volunteer organization, we usually just give the older gentleman at the gate 5 dollars. Basically, Exchange Place hosts a couple of craft fairs, a Halloween event, and a Christmas...
