Exchange Place Living History Farm

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Exchange Place is a living history farm whose mission is to interpret the history and heritage of mid-nineteenth century farm life in Northeast Tennessee. The farm complex includes original and reconstructed buildings from the antebellum period, a kitchen garden and field crop demonstration garden, and heritage livestock and poultry breeds.  The newly constructed Burow Museum houses artifacts from the Gaines and Preston families, who owned the property from about 1820 to 1970, and feeatures exhibits about the history of the site.

Exchange Place is part of the Netherland Inn/Exchange Place Association, a non-profit, volunteer-run organization that receives funding from membership dues, festivals, and special events, and donations.

The Exchange Place Junior Apprentice youth program unites young individuals, age 12-18, with a passion for history and a commitment to community service.  Junior Apprentices (JAs) meet regularly to learn about regional history and traditional crafts and skills associated with rural early American life.  JAs also volunteer for special events and festivals, participate in school programs, and assist with projects at Exchange Place.
