Meghan Kraft loves to travel the world, but she makes her home right here in Nashville, Tennessee. She holds a degree in English, and has worked in the digital marketing realm with companies such as Apartments.com, USA Today and HarperCollins Publishing.
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.
