Main Content


North Knoxville was once known for grand residences, comfortable neighborhoods, and important factories. Its main street is Broadway, a 19th-century road originally known as Broad Street. It connects downtown’s Henley Street to Maynardville, and on the way bisects historic North Knoxville and skirts Sharp’s Ridge to serve the heart of Fountain City. Once an avenue of mansions (it still boasts 1890’s Greystone) and small factories, Broadway still has its charms, roughly tracing the route of First Creek, central Knoxville’s main tributary.
