[Knoxville Citizen] Three Historic Places in Knoxville You’ve Never Seen
If there’s one thing I love about Knoxville, it’s the history and amazing architectural. In my opinion, it’s probably one of the most underappreciated aspects of this amazing city.
While walking to the city center you can observe a mixture of architectural styles from different periods. Of course, what is visible in the style of the Greek Revival while admiring the Old City Hall and then the Victorian style Hotel St. Oliver and Sullivan’s Saloon or if you are a gothic lover you will stop in front of the Church Street Methodist Church and Ayres Hall.
Neoclassicism is present through an unobtrusive reminder of the period when the First Baptist Church was built. The progressive era and the turning point between the two centuries were presented in Jackson Avenue, Gay Street, and Market Square as examples of commercial architecture between the 19th and 20th centuries.
Residential architecture is determined to reflect the development of the city for two centuries. Blount Mansion in the oldest part of the city is designed in the Georgian style. “Streetcar Suburbs” such as Fourth and Gill and Parkridge developed at the end of the nineteenth century with the appearance of trolleys contain a large number of Victorian and craft houses popular during this period.
The settlements developed after the Second World War were built in a rancher style. Where does the difference in architectural styles come from? You assume that many architects of different schools and styles lived here, so it is.
Let’s mention the Victorian residential architect George Franklin Barber. Other notable local architects include members of the Baumann family, Charles I. Barber (son of George), R. F. Graf, and more recently, Bruce McCarty.
Nationally renowned architects with works still standing in the city include Alfred B. Mullett (Greystone), John Russell Pope (H.L. Dulin House), and Edward Larrabee Barnes (Knoxville Museum of Art).
Knoxville is roughly divided into the Downtown area and sections based on the four cardinal directions: North Knoxville, South Knoxville, East Knoxville, and West Knoxville.
Downtown Knoxville traditionally consists of the area bounded by the river on the south, First Creek on the east, Second Creek on the west, and the railroad tracks on the north, though the definition has expanded to include the U.T. campus and Fort Sanders neighborhood, and several neighborhoods along or just off Broadway south of Sharp’s Ridge (“Downtown North”). While primarily home to the city’s central business district and municipal offices, the Old City and Gay Street are mixed residential and commercial areas.
List of architectural sights that you may have put together differently but worth seeing. Knoxville architectural landmarks, as well as other major buildings, dwellings, and other structures in Knoxville, are included on this list. Information about these Knoxville buildings is included on this list, such as when the building first opened and what architectural style it falls under. The list includes both new buildings in Knoxville and older historic landmarks.
