Steeped in history, this East Knoxville neighborhood showcases an array of homes dating back to the 1920s through the 1960s. These residences, typical of their time, are situated on generously sized lots adorned with mature trees and lush landscaping. The neighborhood's architectural diversity is evident, with an abundance of stone and brick houses, charming Tudor-style cottages, mid-century modern ranchers, and a handful of pre-1928 "mansions."

Holston Hills shares some similarities with West Hills in West Knoxville, such as rolling hills, expansive lots, and mid-century modern architectural aesthetics. The neighborhood's roots trace back to the mid-1920s when it was established in conjunction with the Holston Hills Country Club. Much like the development of West Hills, this area was formerly farmland, and developers aimed to create an upscale golf course and country club. Renowned architects played a pivotal role in shaping the neighborhood's character, with Barber & McMurry designing the clubhouse and Donald Ross crafting the golf course—both esteemed figures in their respective fields.

However, the architectural allure doesn't end there. In 1943, the eminent German architect Alfred Clauss left his mark with a distinctive home that still stands proudly atop a hill along Holston Hills Road. Notably, the Holston Hills Country Club remains active, offering not only golf but also tennis and swimming facilities for its members.
