The Wiseman’s Story

The American Spirit in the Mountains of Appalachia

Legends are made at Wiseman’s

Before the migration westward, America’s frontiersmen began their struggle with the landscape in the mountains of Appalachia. Many of the toughest American settlers were raised here in the mountains of Eastern Tennessee and that spirit of the outdoors lives on in family farms and a hard-working community served by Wiseman’s in Johnson City, TN.

For over 50 years, Wiseman’s has been keeping the original American spirit alive from their location on the old Erwin Highway. Arnold and Jeff Wiseman opened the doors back in 1965 and brought the best in rough and ready apparel boots, hats and other American goods to the the expanding agriculture and emerging cities between Johnson City and Asheville, NC.

In 1989, Mr. Wiseman sold the store to the Farner Family of Johnny’s Shoes in Kingsport, TN. They continue to operate the store offering an inventory of western wear and work boots unlike in over 200 miles around. In fact, you might say Wiseman’s is a local legend – continuing to create legends today with some of the most distinctive clothing around.

Come by and see Denise and Michael Webb today and ask them about the tall tales at Wiseman’s and pick up some original authentic Western Wear for you and your American family.
