Jonesborough: Historic Church Tours
December 18, 2021 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm
The Heritage Alliance is excited to offer a new walking tour on Saturday, December 18th. As a part of Jonesborough’s Christmas Church Stroll, the Alliance will be offering Historic Church Tours at 11:30 am and 1:30 pm. These tours will lead guests down Main Street and will include the history of Jonesborough’s churches, interesting tidbits, and a chance to view their beautiful architecture from the outside. This tour will not take people inside the churches, but guests are welcome to look inside participating churches from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm that day as a part of the Town’s event.
Do you know which church was the first building in Jonesborough to be designed by an architect? Do you know who influenced the Baptist Church to purchase their bell? Which church has a historic chandelier, and how did the Civil War impact the churches in town? Learn all this and much more during the one hour tour. Tickets are only $5.00 per person and are available at the Chester Inn State Historic Site and Museum. The museum opens at 11:00 am that morning.
