So which Tennessee town was named the best historic in the state?
This East Tennessee locale near the Appalachian Mountains has plenty of modern amenities to keep you entertained and historic tales to keep you educated. Here's what the site had to say:
"Tennessee's oldest town boasts beautiful mountain scenery and a Main Street lined with mom-and-pop shops. The best way to soak up the town's history is by taking a guided walking tour with the Heritage Alliance. Every Sunday in June is dedicated to Main Street Brews and Tunes, where locals and visitors alike flock to listen to live music and sip on craft beer. The town also goes all-out for the holidays, with haunted cemetery tours complete with costumed storytellers and special Christmas programming. Consider staying at the Eureka Inn, a 1900-era bed-and-breakfast house in a building that dates back to 1797."
