Statement from Senator Rusty Crowe regarding inclusion of $500,000 allocated for the purchase and renovation of the Jackson Theatre in Jonesborough

(NASHVILLE) —  “I am so proud of our Jonesborough leadership for working with Governor Haslam and Lt. Governor Ramsey to make this project a reality.  Renovation and construction means so much to Jonesborough tourism and the arts, much like the Paramount Theatre in Bristol and the Barter Theatre in Abingdon, Va. have done for their communities.  Mayor Wolfe and his staff have worked hard to make this plan come to fruition.  Thank goodness Governor Haslam was able to capture their vision and the potential it offers for Jonesborough, Tennessee’s oldest town.

“I look forward to attending the first production in our new Jackson Theatre.”
