Founded in 1779, Historic Jonesborough is the oldest town in Tennessee. The town is the county seat of Washington County in Northeast Tennessee. Jonesborough was considered to be the center of the abolitionist movement that led up to the Civil War. From its eclectic shops, cobblestone streets, historic churches and quaint little streetlights, the town is packed full of charm. Shown in the upper left is the cupola of the old Washington County Courthouse. Today, the charming town is filled with little bistros and antique shops, and is a lovely place to spend the day or a week!
