Situated between the Appalachian and Great Smoky Mountains, Kingsport is a city in Sullivan and Hawkins counties and has an estimated population of 47,300. Kingsport is commonly included in what is known as the “Mountain Empire”, which spans a portion of southwest Virginia and the counties in Tennessee to the east. Kingsport adopted the Council-Manager form of government when it re-incorporated in 1917; it was the first city within Tennessee to adopt this form of government. Nicknamed the “Model City”, Kingsport was an early example of a planned city, designed by city planner and landscape architect John Nolen. The town was strategically outlined into areas for commerce, churches, residences and industry. The result included some of the earlier uses of traffic circles in the United States.

The Holston Army Ammunition Plant (HSAAP or HAAP), known as the Holston Ordnance Works until the 1960s, was established in 1942 by Tennessee Eastman to manufacture explosives during World War II and continues today. The Holston Defense Corporation operated the facility between 1949 and 1999 under a series of cost reimbursement contracts with the United States Army. Kingsport is home to the campuses of Northeast State Technical Community College, East Tennessee State University and the University of Tennessee.
