Listed on the national register of Historical sites, the Netherland Inn rises above the Holston river. The restored Inn faces the Old Stage Road in the heart of Kingsport'ws Boat yard district, an area along the Holston River that served as a migratory spot for settlers to build boats for their westward trip during the mid-1700s. William King originally built Netherland Inn between 1802-1808 as a point where he could ship salt westward. He later sold the Inn in 1818 to Richard Netherland who procured a stage contract and established the Inn and Tavern for travelers along the old Stage Road. The Inn hosted many famous persons, including Presidents Andrew Jackson, Andrew Johnson and James K Polk. The Inn is filled with museum furnishings that depict and intimate study of life in one of the South's most important American frontier settlements. The property features a Log Cabin Children's Museum and Schoolhouse, Historic Flat boat replica and bank barn. The Inn is open May through October (Saturday & Sunday 2-5 pm) and by special arrangement.
