Historic Jonesborough

My mom, sister, Lydia, and I went to Historic Jonesborough yesterday. The historic district of Tennessee's oldest town is a place I went to often when I was going to college in Johnson City, and it is a place I still enjoy visiting. When you turn onto East Main Street, it is as though you have turned back time. The historic district is lined with beautifully preserved row houses that now house an assortment of charming shops. The Wedding Loft with its beautiful collection of unique gowns and pearls, The Lollipop Shop with its caramels and candies, the Old Sweet Shop with its banana splits and old fashioned sodas, Graphic Designs with its home decor and interior design studio, and The Bistro with its cafe' seating and delicious delicacies are just a few of the places you can visit. Of course, there are also plenty of antique stores to peruse through. Littered throughout the town are old churches, a courthouse, southern mansions serving either as a private residence or a Bed and Breakfast, a log cabin that Andrew Jackson once lived in, and various other historical buildings. Historic Jonesborough truly is a charming retreat back into another time.
