The bustling young town lost its charter after its downturn in fortunes precipitated by the Civil War.
It was re-chartered in 1917. Kingsport was among the first cities in the early twentieth century with a modern urban design
(John Nolen of Cambridge, MA) and among the first municipalities with a city manager form of government and a school system built on a model developed at Columbia University. It is an industrialized city and is the international headquarters for Eastman Chemical Company (a Malcolm Baldridge Quality Award Winner).
