The old Gem Theatre was one of the first buildings in downtown Kingsport. Built in 1915, this building has been used for everything from a country-western bar to a church. It was originally a movie theater that showed a variety of films including old westerns. Kingsport's own Congressman James Quillen sold tickets here. In 1994, the Downtown Kingsport Association purchased the building and later renovated it for their offices.
