Knoxville was founded as a fruit farm by Jeremiah Knox in the late 1870s. Located in the southern portion of the city, Knoxville historically was a popular location because it was shielded from the smoke of the South Side steel mills.
Knoxville enjoys convenient access to shopping along Brownsville Road, and amenities such as McKinley Park and the Carnegie Library Knoxville Branch.
Homes in Knoxville vary from Victorian-era beauties to more modern townhouses, apartments and row homes, but many have fallen into disrepair. This neighborhood is the perfect place for adventurous do-it-yourselfers looking to rehabilitate a lovely old home.
