EAST KNOXVILLE

A large variety of historic homes and a growing downtown scene.

Welcome to East Knoxville

 
 
In getting to know Knoxville one route is to explore the city in broad segments divided into North, East, South, West, and Downtown. Knoxville is historically a diverse city with many different neighborhood communities, interesting architecture, food, and shopping. I think you will find each of these areas has something unique to offer.
 
East Knoxville contains a large variety of historic homes and is nearby Knoxville’s growing downtown scene. Technically speaking, East Knoxville lies east of Knoxville’s downtown area and runs eastbound from Magnolia Avenue (US-70/US-11) and includes major several thoroughfares such as Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard, Dandridge Avenue, and Cherry Street. The city of Knoxville has planned major renovations on the Old City and Magnolia corridor to occur in the near future in an effort to redevelop the business district and improve pedestrian areas.
 
Some of Knoxville’s most stunning historic homes and architecture can be found in this area once known as Park City. The neighborhoods that comprise east Knoxville include Parkridge, Chilhowee Park, Morningside, Five Points, Holston Hills and Burlington. Some claim you can find the highest concentration of Knoxville’s most famous and internationally regarded architect, George Barber, in the Parkridge neighborhood. For folks who love historic homes, want a downtown vibe, or want to find an older home to renovate they will find East Knoxville to be a great fit. Other attractions such as the Knoxville Botanical Gardens and ArboretumKnoxville Zoo, Holston Hills golf course, and Chilhowee Park are scattered throughout the area’s neighborhoods and are some of Knoxville’s finest gems.
 
In addition to historic architecture, East Knoxville neighborhoods are home to places such as the Cansler YMCA, Ashley Nicole, Dreamland Park, Caswell ParkKnoxville Urban League, and the Beck Cultural Exchange Center where you will find communities gathered for events and celebrations alike. If you enjoy local restaurants then don’t miss a chance to head down Magnolia Avenue home to the legendary Knoxville Pizza Palace featured on the Food Channel.
