The historic Salem Presbyterian Church was built in 1894 and it occupies tremendous historical significance. This historical landmark was incorporated in the National Register of Historic Places in 1992.
The Jonesborough Historic District encompasses a wide area of 120 acres (49 hectares) and has several historic buildings within itself. The area reflects a mix of architectural styles, however the more prominent ones include the Queen Anne, Federal and Greek Revival styles. A visitor center is located in this area to guide the visitors though the maze of historic structures. A stroll down the lanes of the district would take you back to the 19th century. The district has been preserved and maintained pretty well. Culture and history enthusiasts will fall in love with this place.
With a historic cornerstone and beautiful stained-glass windows, the Dorland Memorial Presbyterian Church retains its old-world charm as it stands on Bridge Street in the city center. The church is impressive and a fond gathering place for locals.
The ETSU Memorial Center is a gleaming white domed structure on the East Tennessee University campus. The center, known ironically as the "Mini-Dome," is a 8,539-seat multi-purpose arena that changes its dimensions according to the sports seasons. Inside the center there is a basketball court floor, Gentry Field, two auxiliary basketball courts, a six-lane, 280-meter track, six racquetball and handball courts, six tennis courts, a rifle range, two gymnasiums, a strength training facility, several locker rooms and a physical education research laboratory. The arena hosted an NBA preseason game in 1994, when it stretched its already generous proportions to fit more than 14,000 spectators.
Initially known as Johnson's Depot, Johnson City can trace its origins back to 1856 when it was a railroad station founded by Henry Johnson. Often voted as a friendly city for Afro-Americans to retire, one can experience a melting pot of cultures here which culminate in a grand celebration of festivals and national holidays.
