Kingsport, TN, The founder of Kingsport coined the phrase “The Kingsport Spirit” which describes the relentless enthusiasm of its residents to make Kingsport a great place to live through its dedication to the community. This is what makes Kingsport feel like home.

Kingsport’s rich history manifests itself every day through historical landmarks such as Netherland Inn and Exchange Place, as well as the lively downtown streets filled with local art, lofts, cafés, live music, and beautiful old buildings. Heritage, tradition, and patriotism are held close to the hearts of those who call Kingsport home.

in northeastern Tennessee near the Kentucky border lies Kingsport, a blue-collar town with an economy supported by local industries like Eastman-Kodak. The metropolitan area today has about 50,000 residents and preserving its historic downtown has long been a passion for locals.

“Kingsport’s revitalization efforts actually began in 1974 with the formation of our merchant’s association,” said Sherri Mosley, director of the Downtown Kingsport Association (DKA). “We were the first Tennessee community to join the Main Street program. Our local businesses have always understood the importance of a healthy downtown and have raised money for paving, sidewalk improvements, street lamps and benches.”

The city government also supports the DKA’s efforts—to a point. “We have an ordinance to protect some of our most historic buildings,” Mosley said, “but we mainly rely on voluntary guidelines for things like signage, awnings, brickwork” and other appearance-related matters like sidewalk restaurant seating and merchandise display. She cited a recent example of a new downtown business that installed a residential-type front door. So Mosley took the owner around town, focused his attention on other store entryways, and explained to him what the local design guidelines were intended to accomplish.

“He got it,” she said, “and that door is being replaced….Persuasion is a big part of my job.”

Among other recent downtown developments, Mosley noted the purchase of a building once used as a theater by a local developer who’s been involved in other rehabilitation projects. “And we now have nearly 100 loft-style apartments in downtown Kingsport,” she added. “They’re very popular with young professionals and retirees” who appreciate the convenience of cafés, shops and services located within walking distance. Mosley also noted the DKA’s “excellent relationship” with the local Chamber of Commerce and their “Move to Kingsport” initiative.

“Participation in the Main Street program has been huge for Kingsport to help us attract downtown investors and grow our tax revenues,” Mosley said.

Savannah’s Sumner agreed: “The Main Street program is a wonderful tool that’s had major benefits for our merchants and residents.”

In addition to Kingsport, Savannah, award-winning Collierville and her hometown of Franklin (“where we raised $8 million in private funds to renovate our downtown theater”), state director Williams lauded revitalization efforts in all of the Tennessee Main Street communities, including Jackson, Murfreesboro, Dyersburg, McMinnville, Jonesborough, Greenville and Columbia—the latter two featuring the restored homes of U.S. Presidents Andrew Johnson and James Polk, respectively.

Those famous 19th-century Tennesseans would probably appreciate work that Williams and her Main Street colleagues are doing to preserve their state’s historic downtowns by moving them forward into the 21st century and beyond.

“Talk about Concealed Carry!”, A woman arrested on driver's license offenses now faces felony charges, with Kingsport police saying she introduced into jail some atypical contraband: a stolen — and loaded — .22-caliber mini-revolver, via a body orifice.  

Kingsport, TN, Kingsport was developed by European Americans, after the American Revolutionary War, at the confluence of the North and South Forks of the Holston River. In 1787 it was known as "Salt Lick," for an ancient lick. It was first settled along the banks of the South Fork, about a mile from the confluence. The Long Island of the Holston River is near the confluence, which is mostly within present-day corporate boundaries of Kingsport. The island was an important site for the Cherokee, colonial pioneers and early settlers, and specifically mentioned in the 1770 Treaty of Lochaber.

Early settlements at the site were used as a staging ground for other pioneers who were traveling overland on the Wilderness Road leading to Kentucky through Cumberland Gap. First chartered in 1822, Kingsport also became an important shipping port on the Holston River, a main transportation carrier. Goods originating for many miles around from the surrounding countryside were loaded onto barges for the journey downriver to the Tennessee River at Knoxville.

In the Battle of Kingsport (December 13, 1864) during the American Civil War, a force of 300 Confederates under Colonel Richard Morgan (1836–1918) stopped a larger Union force for nearly two days. An army of over 5,500 troops under command of Major General George Stoneman (1822–1894) had left Knoxville, Tennessee, to raid Confederate targets in Virginia: the salt works at Saltville, the lead works at Wytheville, and the iron works in Marion.

While Col. Morgan's small band held off a main Union force under Major General Cullem Gillem on the opposite side the Holston River, Union Col. Samuel Patton took a force of cavalry to a ford in the river 2.5 miles (4.0 km) north and came down behind the Confederates. Out-numbered, out-flanked, and demoralised by the bitter winter weather, Col. Morgan surrendered. The Confederates suffered 18 dead, and 84 prisoners of war were sent to a Union prison in Knoxville
