This Is The Oldest Place You Can Possibly Go In Tennessee And Its History Will Fascinate You

Tennessee was admitted as the 16th state in the Union, a decision that was thankfully finalized in June of 1796. But did you know the oldest spot in the state actually pre-dates statehood? We’re coming up close to 250 years as a state (well…in 2046!) and it’s still pretty amazing to experience Jonesborough, Tennessee. Small, cute and full of heart, this is one day trip you don’t want to miss.
