Our Community

Johnson City

Bustling with a population of more than 60,000, Johnson City lies just west of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Northeast Tennessee. The rugged beauty of the Appalachians surrounds the thriving city that encompasses all of Washington County and parts of Carter and Sullivan counties.

It is known for its rich history (Daniel Boone, Al Capone and railroads), cultural heritage (bluegrass music, quilts and storytelling), outdoor adventure area (hiking, whitewater rafting, rock climbing) and beautiful lakes and mountain vistas. Yet, the eighth largest city in Tennessee also boasts diverse economic and educational opportunities and has become a regional hub for health care, including medical and pharmacy schools associated with East Tennessee State University. The city is also home to a beautiful and historic Veterans Administration campus and hospital.

Food, crafts, music and other entertainment abound at the area’s many annual events such as the Blue Plum Festival (June), Pepsi Independence Day Celebration (July 4), Umoja Festival (August), the Taste of Johnson City (September), the Storytelling Festival (October). Local bands bring the nights alive at popular downtown locations. Exciting day trips to Asheville, Knoxville, Gatlinburg and the ski areas of North Carolina are about an hour away.

All this, an excellent economy and one of the lowest costs of living in the U.S. led Forbes magazine to list Johnson City as one of the “Best Small Cities for Business and Careers.” Kiplinger’s named it one of the “10 Least Expensive Cities for Living in the U.S.A.” Residents and visitors alike are drawn to the big city opportunities and small town atmosphere of Johnson City, a one-of-a-kind town.
