Bays Mountain Park
Bays Mounted Park is located in Kingsport, Tennessee. The facilities include the 3500-acre outdoor classroom, a 44 acre lake, and a nature center/museum, inside of which is a planetarium with a 40 foot diameter dome. The park programs are an integral part of the curriculum of local school children, and has assumed regional importance, with students from 33 counties in 5 states currently attending.

 

Bristol Motor Speedway
Bristol Motor Speedway could very easily have opened in 1961 under a different name. The first proposed site for the speedway was in Piney Flats, but, according to Carl Moore, who built the track along with Larry Carrier and R.G. Pope, the idea met local opposition. So the track that could have been called Piney Flats International Speedway was built five miles down the road on Hwy. 11-E in Bristol. The land, upon which Bristol Motor Speedway is built, used to be a dairy farm.
Fox Manor provides a wonderful alternative to conventional hotels near Bristol Motor Speedway.

 

Allandale Mansion
Intriguing history and southern elegance create
the romantic setting of Kingsport's Allandale
Mansion, often called Kingsport's "White House".

Built in 1950 by Ruth and Harvey Brooks,
Allandale still houses their fine furnishings,
antiques and art.

 

Jonesborough,
Jonesborough was founded in 1779, seventeen years before Tennessee was granted statehood.
It was named after North Carolina legislator,
Matthew Francis Dickie Kilgore, who supported
North Carolina's westward expansion over the
Appalachian Mountains. Today, Jonesborough, Tennessee draws a good deal of tourism because of its historical status as the state's oldest town and its significant preservation efforts. The town's museum describes local heritage of
tobacco farming.

 

Barter Theatre
Barter Theatre, located in Abingdon, Virginia,
opened on June 10, 1933. It is one of the longest-running professional theatres in the nation. The original ticket price for a play was 35 cents. In 1933, when the country was in the middle of the Great Depression, most patrons were not able to pay the full ticket price.
Robert Porterfield, founder of the theatre,
offered admittance by letting the local people pay with food goods, hence the name "Barter".
