April 27, 2019 –
Exchange Place Living History Farm will joyously usher in the planting season with its annual Spring Garden Fair on Saturday, April 27, from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., and on Sunday, April 28, from noon until 5 p.m., at the 1850s farmstead located at 4812 Orebank Road in Kingsport.
What was originally a small herb sale is now, in its 35th year, one of the oldest and most anticipated gardening events in our region, with the grounds of the historic site filled with thousands of locally-grown plants – annuals, perennials, trees, shrubs and blooming baskets – plus garden-related arts and crafts.
Admission is $5 for adults and is free for children under the age of 12. Proceeds from the event helps keep our animals fed and with the restoration and upkeep of the site, which is proudly listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Exchange Place is a non-profit, volunteer-run living history farm, educational facility and regional attraction that seeks to preserve, protect, interpret, and manage the history, heritage, and artifacts pertaining to mid-19th century farm life in Northeast Tennessee.
