GAS STATION
WASHINGTON CO., Tenn. -

The Town of Jonesborough was handed a big check to help with the renovation of an old gas station near downtown.

Jonesborough officials were given $3,500 by Farm Credit Mid-America. The money will go towards turning the old Exxon Station on the corner of Boone Street and Main Street into a store that will sell locally-produced goods that you normally find at their farmer's market on Saturdays.

Town Mayor Kelly Wolfe says this store will be a big help to the folks who use the farmer's market.
