Nestled in the Appalachian Mountains in Historic Jonesborough, Tennessee, the state’s oldest town and storytelling capital of the world, the International Storytelling Center (ISC), offers a one-of-a kind event destination with modern amenities in an old-world setting. Stroll down Jonesborough’s well-preserved Main Street to find quaint, locally-owned shops, historic homes, and cozy bed and breakfasts. This, along with tree-lined streets and brick sidewalks, offers a quaint charm that is the perfect setting for events or meetings.
The Center campus includes the 14,000-square-foot Mary B. Martin Hall, surrounding plaza and courtyard, and three-acre Storytelling Park that all offer a quaint charm that is the perfect setting for your business meeting, faculty retreat, seminar or presentation.
