|Tennessee Quilts is located across from the Visitors Center on Boone Street in Jonesborough, Tennessee`s oldest town. Founded in 1779, Jonesborough was at that time part of North Carolina, but it later became part of the short lived State of Franklin before becoming part of Tennessee.
Jonesborough is today the site of numerous historic homes and other structures, shops of all kinds, and the National Storytelling Network and Storytelling Foundation International. Festivals and concerts are held throughout the year, including Quiltfest, which is held each July, and the National Storytelling Festival, held on the first weekend in October. Jonesborough is also part of the nation`s first All-American Region, the Tri-Cities, Tennessee / Virginia.
