Workers dress in period costume to make this experience quite authentic. The fall festival at Exchange Place is a wonderful family activity!

Mosey down Orebank Road in Kingsport, Tennessee and you'll come across Exchange Place, a farmstead and living history site that begs you to pull off the road and take a few steps back into the 1850s. Be sure to bring along your camera, there are numerous Kodak moments waiting for you as you stroll the grounds. On any day when... More

A wonderful way to spend a day learning and relearning about history both orally and visually. Lots of beautiful and useful crafts made by craftsmen that one can purchase. I like to get ground cornmeal and flour there. Also, gardeners have cuttings to sell at reasonable prices.

I walk the Green Belt starting at the Petco parking lot, its a nice hike the only bad spot is that open place when its really hot. The path does end and turn into gravel its about a 6 % grade not for the weak hearted. It reminds me of Living history farms in Iowa.

This is a wonderful place to go to learn about history. But make sure you go when it is open. Trip Advisor has it wrong. They are only open from April till October not every Saturday and Sunday all year. We went thinking it was open and the lady there was very nice and let us take a tour since... More

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
