Knoxville is the largest city in East Tennessee Grand Division and the third-largest city in the state. It is also the county seat of Knox County and the principal city of the Knoxville Metropolitan Statistical Area. In 2019, the estimated population in the area was 869,046. As of July 1st, 2019, the city had an estimated population of 187,603.

Knoxville was first inhabited in 1786 and was Tennessee’s first capital. Throughout the early 19th century, the city struggled with geographic isolation. However, in 1855, the railroad arrived in the area and its economy began to grow. The secession issue divided the city during the Civil War and both Union and Confederate armies occupied the area alternately. 

After the Civil War, the city grew rapidly as a manufacturing and wholesaling center. The collapse of the manufacturing sector after the 1920s stagnated the city’s economy. That led to a decline in the downtown area and political fights entrenched the city’s leaders. However, the city rejuvenated after hosting the World’s Fair in 1982. Private developers and city leaders also played a significant role in the revival of the city, especially the downtown area.

The History of Knoxville

The first settlers of Knoxville were the indigenous people who arrived during the Woodland Period. A burial mound is among the oldest artificial structures found in the city and it was constructed during the Mississippian culture period. The city has preserved the earthwork mound but the University of Tennessee has developed the area around it.

The Early Woodland habitation area is among the prehistoric sites in the city. It is at the Tennessee River and Knob Creek junction. Other prehistoric sites include:

Bussell Island: It was originally inhabited by various Native American cultures for thousands of years before early European explorers arrived.

Dallas Phase: Located in South Appalachian Geologic province, it is an archeological phase within the Mississippian III period. 

When the French and Indian War ended the Euro-American, the settlement grew drastically west of the Appalachians. In French Broad and Holston valleys, the white settlers had already established the areas by the 1780s. In 1785, the U.S Congress unsuccessfully ordered illegal settlers out of the valley. 

In the modern days, development in the city has expanded beyond the South Knoxville waterfront and Tennessee River. The city adopted a long-term improvement project called the South Waterfront Vision Plan to re-energize the 750-acre waterfront on the Tennessee River. 

The home of rich arts 

Knoxville hosts several festivals in a year. The city’s contribution to old-time, bluegrass, and country music are significant from Homer and Jethro and Everly Brothers to the Flatt and Scruggs. 

Established in 1935, the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra (KSO) is the oldest continuing orchestra. Knoxville Symphony Orchestra maintains several full-time musicians who perform in over 200 events annually. The Civic Auditorium, Tennessee Theatre, and the Bijou Theatre are KSO’s traditional venues. However, it also performs in other non-traditional venues. 

In 1943, Sergei Rachmaninoff a Russian composer and virtuoso pianist performed his final concert at the University of Tennessee at Alumni Memorial Auditorium. The Blender, an American music magazine ranked Knoxville city as the 17th best music scene in America.

Knoxville also hosts several art festivals. The most popular festival is the Dogwood Arts Festival, which celebrates and promotes regional culture, art, and natural beauty. The 17-day event takes place in April. In the same month, the city’s residents enjoy the Rossini Festival that celebrates Italian culture and opera. 

June’s Kuumba Festival, which means creativity in Swahili, honors the region’s African American heritage and displays folk arts, music, games, dance, food, theater, storytelling, visual arts, and games.             

The home of sports

The athletics program in the University of Tennessee popularly known as the “Vols,” or the “Volunteers,” is famous in Knoxville and its environs. The Vol’s football team plays at Neyland Stadium, one of the largest stadiums in the world. The city is also home to Thompson-Boling Arena where the men and women basketball teams play. The facility is the largest indoor basketball arena in the U.S. 

The city is home to several professional sports team, including:

  • Knoxville Ice Bears
  • The Tennessee Smokies
  • Knoxville Force 

The Great Smoky Mountains wildfires

In late November 2016, a complex set of wildfires began. Towns such as Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, which are near the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, were the most affected. The fires left 190 people injured and claimed the lives of 14. It was one of the largest natural disasters in Tennessee’s history. 

On 12 December, the fire had burned a significant chunk of land approximately 15 square miles (10,000 acres) inside the park. The fire also affected over 6,000 acres outside the park. The incident forced 14,000 residents as well as tourists to evacuate. The fire damaged around 2,000 buildings.  

How does SERVPRO’s fire damage restoration process preserve Knoxville properties?

After a fire, do not try to remediate the affected area on your own. A reliable restorer has the experience needed to follow the proper fire restoration process to get your house to its pre-damaged state. At SERVPRO, we have a team of highly trained technicians who aim to minimize damage to our customer’s property. 

Even after extinguishing the flames smoke and soot can continue to cause damage. While working on your property, we are cautious of:

Rust and corrosion: Kitchen appliances and electronics with metallic surfaces can corrode or rust when oxidized. This can cause the appliances to malfunction leading to expensive repairs. We can clean the affected appliances using advanced products to minimize damage effectively. 

Soot staining: This occurs when soot in the air settles on various surfaces causing discoloration. The material and the time that is taken before restoration begins determines whether the soot staining is removable. If restoration is delayed the discoloration can be permanent. Our restorers can agitate affected surfaces using brushes, towels, air, and water pressure to eliminate the soot.

Mold: It can occur within 24 to 48 hours because of the water firefighters used to extinguish the flames. Mold can spread to other areas fast. If not remediated on time, it can cause health effects to occupants. Our restorers use effective disinfectants to clean the area leaving you in a safe home.

Even a small fire can cause irreversible damage to your property if not handled properly. Contact SERVPRO of Rocky Hill / Sequoyah Hills / South Knoxville at (865) 862-8907 for professional restoration.  We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Knoxville Residents Can Trust Our Technicians to Provide Professional Water Removal 

Home to over 187,000 people, Knoxville is rich in history. From its humble beginning as a relatively isolated town, it has grown to become Tennessee’s third-largest city. 

Indigenous People Arrive

Knoxville can trace its history back thousands of years to indigenous people who settled in the area. The first arrivals are believed to be people from the Woodland period. A burial mound is preserved from the Mississippian culture period (c. A.D. 1000- 1400) and is one of the oldest man-made structures in Knoxville. Other prehistoric sites include:

  •   Early Woodland (c. 1000 B.C. – A.D. 1000) habitation near the Knox-Blount county line
  •   Dallas Phase Mississippians villages – Post Oak Island
  •   Dallas Phase Mississippians villages – Bussell Island

Native American Influence

The Cherokee people were thought to have migrated from the Great Lakes area into what would become Knoxville. By the 18th century, they were the leading tribe in the East Tennessee region. The Cherokee were part of the Iroquoian language tribes and were continually fighting with the Creek and Shawnee tribes. The Cherokee name given to the area was kuwanda'talun'y. It means “Mulberry Place”. They resided mainly along the Tennessee River in what is known as the Overhill settlements.

Europeans, Traders & Explorers Come to Knoxville

Hernando de Soto is supposed to have been to Bussell Island in 1540. Explorers and white traders started arriving in the later years of the 17th century. One early record notes that a British gentleman, Henry Timberlake, was sent as an emissary to the Overhill settlement. Timberlake is recorded as stating how pleased he was that the waters of the Tennessee River were deep. His party had struggled to navigate the shallower waters of the Holston River.

Settling the Appalachians

After the French and Indian War and the American Revolution, European settlers flocked to the Appalachians. They established a settlement to the west of the mountains. White settlers were not unfamiliar with the area. There was a group already well established in the Holston and French Broad valleys. These locations were considered part of Cherokee lands, and the illegal settlers were ordered to leave in 1785 by Congress. It was an order that fell flat, and tensions between the Cherokee and the Euro-Americans grew.

James White – An American Pioneer

James White was born in North Carolina in 1747. He was not only a soldier in the American Revolutionary War but a pioneer as well. During the Revolution, White extinguished himself as a militia captain. He would eventually become the lieutenant colonel commander of the militia in Knox County. In 1783, White took a group of men on an expedition that would lead to the discovery of the area that would become Knoxville.

White’s Fort & The Beginnings of a Town

James White and James Connor built White’s Fort in 1786. The fort was built on land White had purchased a few years earlier and is located near the mouth of First Creek. The land was surveyed for the creation of a town in 1790 by White’s son-in-law Charles McClung. The borders of the town ran between First Creek and Second Creek. The result of the survey included:

  •   64 half-acre lots were established
  •   Waterfront area was set aside for a town common
  •   2 lots were designated for a church and graveyard
  •   4 lots were set aside for a school

A Church, School, and New Governor

In 1792 the First Presbyterian Church was founded. On the lots designated for a school, Blount College was chartered in 1794. It would be the basis for the University of Tennessee that claims that starting date as its own. William Blount, a North Carolina surveyor, was appointed the governor of the Territory South of the River Ohio in 1790. He was appointed to govern this newly established territory by President George Washington.

Cherokee Nation & the Treaty of Holston

Tensions were still on the rise between the Cherokee and the settlers. Governor Blount needed to bring peace to the situation. The problem of boundaries and illegal settlers had to be dealt with, so there was clarity on both sides. The Treaty of Holston was developed quickly and was signed by Blount and others, including John Watts, a Cherokee representative at White’s Fort in 1791.

Knoxville Becomes the Capital

The territorial capital did not end up where Blount originally wanted it because the Cherokee nation would not cede the land. He then chose White’s Fort as the new capital and named it Knoxville. This was in honor of Henry Knox, a Revolutionary War general who was then Secretary of State. 

War & Peace with the Cherokee Nation

It was not long before trouble began. From the Holston treaty, Blount understood that he had purchased land from the Cherokee that made up much of what is now East Tennessee. This was under debate by the Indians, and violence broke out over the issue. In 1793 Knoxville settlers attacked the Cherokee unlawfully. Eventually, peace would be established in 1794.

Knoxville Businesses Can Rely On SERVPRO For Storm Cleanup Help

11/15/2020 (Permalink)

fallen trees and power lines on a road When your business is facing cleanup after a storm, contact team SERVPRO. We are standing by 24/7 to take your emergency call.

Our Storm Cleanup Service Is Suitable For Every Kind of Knoxville Building

Knoxville is a lively, busy, and populous city that is proud to be the county seat of Knox County. With a population of 187,603, Knoxville is the third-largest city in the state, after Nashville and Memphis.

When settlers first colonized Knoxville in 1786, it was the capital of Tennessee. The isolated position put it at a disadvantage, but with the advent of the railroad, Knoxville started growing in size and power. Some people refer to it as an alternative Nashville – but calling it that means missing out on its own unique culture and history.

Knoxville has a strong manufacturing history. Although its fortunes waned a little after the Great Depression, it has made a comeback in the last decades, with many world-class businesses making their homes here.

A Fascinating Downtown

Knoxville visitors, and those who choose to set up their businesses here, are frequently amazed and delighted by the staggering range of architectural styles the city boasts. There are so many impressive buildings to look at, and the varied architectural periods help give Knoxville its unique vibe, which encompasses both historic and modern sensibilities. Just some of the gems you will find include:

  • The Tennessee Theater. Located in the Burwell Building, the Tennessee Theater, is a bona fide 1920s movie palace. It was opened in 1928 with two thousand seats in the auditorium. The interior includes décor from all over the world, such as French-style chandeliers with Czechoslovakian crystals and Italian marble floors.
  • Old Knoxville City Hall. The main building in this complex was completed in 1851. It started as a school for the deaf before becoming Knoxville’s first City Hall. The facade boasts an impressive portico with supporting columns, while other parts of the building have Italian Renaissance and Neoclassical elements.
  • Howard Baker Federal Courthouse. Knoxville’s architecture did not stop in the 1920s! This impressive building was constructed in 1991. It has an elaborate interior that showcases the best of Neo-Georgian architecture and is large enough to occupy two city blocks. The Federal Courthouse started life as the home offices of Whittle Communications before the company folded and sold the building to the Federal government.
  • The Andrew Johnson Hotel. This striking building has stood since the 1930s. When it was built, it was Knoxville’s tallest building and a notable feature of the skyline until the 1970s. The building is unusual, boasting a second story pavilion and a penthouse. These days it is an office block but still retains its history.
  • William Blount Mansion. No visit to Knoxville would be complete without stopping by the William Blount Mansion, the oldest building in downtown Knoxville. Construction began on the house in 1792, and Governor Blount drafted much of the Tennessee Constitution here. The house features an elegant two-story wood frame construction, even though many homes in the area at this time were mere log cabins!

It is not only businesses that can boast incredible architecture in the city! Knoxville has the greatest number of homes by George Franklin Barber in the nation. Barber was a Victorian architect who was so successful that his designs were sold through mail order catalog.

Visitors or residents eager to learn more can visit The Ewing Gallery of Art + Architecture, which aims to educate about modern and historic building styles and trends.

What Puts Knoxville Buildings At Risk Of Storm Damage?

Knoxville has a humid subtropical climate, with warm summers and colder winters. Unfortunately for residents and businesses, the area is no stranger to storms and extreme weather. Tennessee, and Knoxville specifically, have seen their share of storms that knocked out power and caused wide-ranging damage to homes and businesses.

There were tornado outbreaks in both 1998 and 2020, where more than one tornado hit in a short space of time. The 1998 Tornado outbreak hit East Tennessee, causing twelve deaths and $133 million in damages.

It is clear that storms are a risk in this area. Thankfully, SERVPRO is here to help.

Understanding Different Building Materials Is Key To Storm Cleanup

When a city boasts as many different architectural styles as Knoxville, a knowledgeable storm cleanup service is necessary. Old buildings especially are prone to damp and mold, and we must take that into account. Building construction can affect many areas of remediation, including:

  • How long it takes to dry a building
  • How much risk there is of hidden water
  • The likelihood of mold growth
  • Which cleaning and drying methods are most suitable
  • How best to deodorize the area

Our technicians understand how building construction affects drying and will design a drying plan that takes everything into account. We know how best to position equipment such as air dryers and dehumidifiers for the desired outcome. And because we train our staff to the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification standards, you can rest assured that our team is up to date on the latest best practices.

SERVPRO Monitors Drying In Every Kind Of Building

It is clear that every building is unique and requires an individual approach to storm damage remediation. Monitoring moisture levels both at the beginning of remediation and throughout drying means we are always on top of the situation and can make adjustments as needed. Some of the ways we monitor the problem include:

  • Using moisture meters to measure moisture levels across walls and ceilings
  • Using moisture probes to examine the levels inside the carpet
  • Examining the sub-floor to see if water has penetrated there
  • Monitoring humidity levels to ensure they are acceptable.
  • Employing thermal imaging to check temperature differences and track the movement of moisture throughout building materials

No matter whether you run your business out of an ultra-modern condo or a renovated Victorian mansion, we have the equipment and training to restore it “Like it never even happened.”

SERVPRO of Rocky Hill / Sequoyah Hills / South Knoxville is here for all your storm damage cleanup needs. Call us at (865) 862-8907.

  • Providing adequate lighting and power to perform the necessary reconstruction

How does reconstruction of a property after a fire work?
