Jonesborough's Town Tours take visitors on a storied stroll down Main Street. Costumed guides will share with you the history of the buildings and the people who made their lives within. Take a walking tour at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday in March-December. Tickets are only $5.00 per person and can be purchased directly at the Chester Inn State Historic Site and Museum on Main Street. Tours depart from the Museum and usually last an hour. From May-August, an additional tour will be offered on Thursday evenings at 7:00 p.m.  There’s never a bad time of day to tour Tennessee’s Oldest Town.

You can also put your history detective skills to use the second Saturday of the month with the Jonesborough Mythbusting Tour. Think you can separate the myths from the facts? Take the Mythbusting tour from March-December at 1:00 p.m. the 2nd Saturday of the month.

All tour tickets are $5.00. If you would like to schedule a tour at another time, or reserve a space for a larger group, please contact the Heritage Alliance directly at 423-753-9580.
