KINGSPORT-Once one of the finest buildings in Northeast Tennessee, the First National Bank at the corner of Broad and Center streets opened its doors in 1927, a massive three-story structure adorned with white marble walls and windows that spanned two stories high. 

KINGSPORT-John and Angela Vachon bought their first building in downtown Kingsport four years ago. Today they own eight buildings downtown and are always on the lookout for more. The goal? "To highlight what's beautiful and minimize what's not," and ultimately make downtown one the region's top shopping and dining destinations.
