    Calling anyone from Jonesborough, TN. The McKinney Center is working on a project about life in Jonesborough. The goal is to interview a lot of people about their experience living and working here, and we will have an exhibit where all these people’s portraits are displayed. People will be able to come and hear what life is like in Jonesborough, from the people who live and work here. 

    We want to hear from people whose family has lived here for generations and people who have lived here a year. We want to hear from people who work at shops, restaurants, schools, stores, banks, farms, and anywhere else. We want to hear about the moments you’re grateful for, the hard times, and anything in between. If you are not comfortable with doing a video interview but know someone who would be, put us in touch!

    If you or someone you know would like to talk about your time in Jonesborough, contact your favorite McKinney Center staff member, call us at 423-753-0562, or email Isaac Wood at
