If you're thinking of moving to the Johnson City area, you'll be delighted to find out more about the city's history by visiting some of it's most infamous landscapes. Near the ETSU campus is a historic area of homes known as 'The Tree Streets'. Visitors can learn more about this historic area by visiting it's website, treestreets.net. Not only is the neighborhood rich in history, it's still alive and vibrant today, hosting an annual neighborhood Yard Sale popular with locals, and actively promotes tales from days gone by.  Below is an excerpt from the website where visitors can download an 11 page PDF walking tour guide:

"Just beyond the eye of the casual observer and other passers-through, the Tree Streets neighborhood of Johnson City, TN offers historical cultural phenomena and tales from days gone by that can only really be experienced by hitting the pavement. The Walking Tour takes a self-guided approach to understanding our community, by presenting a printable tour booklet. This tour includes a jaunt through Young Cemetery where some of our areas first settlers built homes on a land grant from the King of England, as well as Montrose Court where the notorious Al Capone may have visited. The tour booklet also features a guide to architectural home styles that may be found along your journey"
