Jonesborough is the oldest town in Tennessee. Established 17 years before
becoming the sixteenth state. The town had 5,860 residents as of the 2020
census. Their Historic District is on the National Register of Historic Places.
Located in the northeast corner of Tennessee near Johnson City and
Bristol. In my opinion Jonesborough is one the prettiest towns in the U.S.
Jonesborough is home of the International Storytelling Center. The town hosts the National Storytelling Festival October 6-8, 2023. It is the super-
bowl of storytelling www.storytellingcenter.net
