PARKRIDGE

Full of gracious Victorian and charming Craftsman/Bungalow-style homes.

Welcome to Parkridge

 
 
Parkridge in East Knoxville is full of gracious Victorian and charming Craftsman/Bungalow-style homes. Originally this neighborhood was part of Park City and similar to some of the other historic neighborhoods (such as Island Home) it was developed as a streetcar suburb for Knoxville’s professional class in the 1890s. Later annexed by the city of Knoxville at the turn of the century, this nabe has been home to famous architects such as George Barber, received visits from the likes of President FDR, and hosted demonstrations during the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s. In 1990, almost 700 buildings in Parkridge were added to the National Register of Historic Places as the Park City Historic District. Not only is this the largest amount of structures registered in any one area in Knoxville, but many also claim that this nabe has the highest quantity of homes designed by famed architect George Barber.
 
Parkridge has seen major changes in the last fifteen years. From the efforts of new and existing residents, the city of Knoxville, and organizations such as Knox Heritage and Knox Housing Partnership, countless historic houses have been renovated or restored to their former glory. Once an area with a high proportion of rental properties, Parkridge has steadily increased in property value and single-family owners. The addition of the Cansler YMCA, Caswell Park, Ashley Nicole Dream Park, and the O’Connor Senior Center provides residents with lovely amenities. Parkridge is also situated less than two miles from the Old City and Downtown Knoxville thereby making it one of Knoxville’s more walkable neighborhoods. With a very active neighborhood association be sure to stop by for one of their potluck dinners or maybe catch their annual Home Tour and see some gorgeous historic gems!
