Historic Town Tours Resume March 4

Historic Tours Return to Weekly Activity Schedule in Jonesborough

Jonesborough’s Historic Walking Tours will resume on Friday, March 4 at 1 p.m., and there are some exciting changes coming this season.

Implemented in the fall of 2014 by the Heritage Alliance of Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia and Main Street Jonesborough, these tours have shared Jonesborough’s rich history and heritage with more than 1,000 people thus far.

This season, guests can purchase their tickets, still only $5 per person, directly at the Chester Inn State Historic Site and Museum located on Main Street in downtown Jonesborough.  Tours will depart from the Museum and costumed guides will lead guests on an hour long journey through Jonesborough’s storied past.
