Exchange Place, - a living history farm, is Kingsport's tonic for today's fast paced life. The site was once a community that served as a self-supporting plantation, a relay station along the Old Stage Road and the Post Office for Eden's Ridge, TE.
Exchange Place -- the Gaines-Preston Farm recaptures life in the early 1800s where you exchange horse, money and stories.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, nine of the ten buildings built between 1816 and 1851 are restored on their original foundations. 

As part of Exchange Place's commitment to preserve 19th century agricultural life, period livestock now reside on the farm. Domestic skills, including spinning, weaving, quilting, candle dipping and basketry, are frequently demonstrated during festivals and by special arrangements.

"Exchanges" still take place today at the country store. Instead of exchanging currency, crafts made by local artisans may be purchased. 

Exchange Place is open for tours
May through October and by special arrangement for hosting events.
