Washington County/Jonesborough History Museum
The Jonesborough/Washington County History Museum is located inside the Jonesborough Visitors Center and is open seven days a week with free admission. Operated by the Heritage Alliance of Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia, the museum hosts rotating exhibits including tributes to area veterans, Civil War history, agriculture and farming equipment, and much more. Permanent exhibits include artifacts from frontier life, Victorian era furniture like what you would have found in the Chester Inn located in downtown Jonesborough, a vintage fire pumper that was used to extinguish fires in the late 1800s and an original clock that once kept time at the top of the Washington County Courthouse. The Jonesborough/Washington County History Museum is the perfect place to take a photo with select artifacts from the early settlement of Jonesborough and to start your visit through Tennessee’s Oldest Town.
