“Scenic Historic Site”

Tipton-Haynes Historic Site

Attraction details
Reviewed May 8, 2014

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.
