Guide was in a huge hurry, all I could do to keep up. Home was gorgeous, hated the traffic sounds when trying to imagine what it was like back then.

We visited this interesting historic site and learned some things of the past history of the area. We were showed how they made brooms from broom straw. It was cool and was a great place to walk and relax. We were told some of the history of and about the Tipton's and the Hayne's. Also they were making sorghum.

tipton-haynes is a very different place to visit in johnson city. It sets on a large piece of land and is very old. It is not however run down in any way, it remains a very nice place to walk around and learn some history. This place also has been known for paranormal activity.

Tipton- Haynes is a great place to visit. The grounds are a place where you can let the kids run and hike. The visitor center is an excellent place to learn the history surrounding Johnson City. The day we were there they were making maple syrup like they used to and they had a re-enactor in the cabin explaining life in the hills. It was a a neat place to go to learn and get the kids out of the car on a trip. They have all kinds of activites throughout the year highlighting the different things occuring on a farm from this era.
