Quote Walk

Out for a walk in downtown Johnson City? Don’t forget to look down! You’ll find quote stones scattered throughout the area.

These stones with engraved quotes provide their viewers a brief moment of reflection as they pass by locations where the stones are embedded in the sidewalk. The first stones were installed at each of the entrances to Founders Park, and two more were located at the intersection of Commerce and Main Streets and Commerce and Market Streets. As this program expands, the quote stones will extend down Main Street, offering visitors a “quote walk” in which they can travel from point A to point B in search of all the current quote stones. The quotes relate to various themes, ranging from art-related expressions to interpretations of life in general.

Nine new stones will be installed in early 2019, so keep an eye on the ground for new quotes.

Take a moment to read, contemplate, and enjoy!
