The Inventor Center — a new community space for Kingsport’s creators, makers and artists of all kinds — is open for business.
Located at 118 Shelby St., the Inventor Center adds to Kingsport’s developing entrepreneurial ecosystem. Places like the Regional Center for Advanced Manufacturing, Streamworks, D-B Excel, SyncSpace and now the Inventor Center give residents a place to learn new skills, foster community or build a business. Inside the location are specialty wood and metal shops. Classes including painting, woodworking and photography will be taught by professional instructors.
