Exchange Place : Kingsport, Tennessee

Exchange Place : Kingsport, Tennessee Living History Farm 1850's Exchange Place - Kingsport, TN.

Exchange Place, - a living history farm, is Kingsport's tonic for today's fast paced life. The site was once a community that served as a self-supporting plantation, a relay station along the Old Stage Road and the Post Office for Eden's Ridge, TE. Exchange Place -- the Gaines-Preston Farm recaptures life in the early 1800s. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, nine of the ten buildings built between 1816 and 1851 are restored on their original foundations. As part of Exchange Place's commitment to preserve 19th century agricultural life, period livestock now reside on the farm. Domestic skills, including washing, spinning, weaving, ironing, quilting, candle dipping and basketry, are frequently demonstrated during festivals and by special arrangements.

Witches Wynd 2017
(Oct 27/28 2017 : 8:00 pm $8 Admission Charge)
"Exchange Place needs no props after dark for a spooky atmosphere, with its shadowy corners of ancient log buildings where storytellers wait to relate chilling tales of the past. Guests assemble at the barn, divide into five groups, each of which is led by a lantern-bearing host to hear all of the five stories wind and through scenes relating to the story just heard.
Autumn weather in Tennessee can be cool enough to bundle up and windy enough to enhance the evening.. :) "
