Knox Heritage invites interested residents and business owners to attend its Historic East Knoxville/Park City/Burlington Neighborhoods meeting on Monday, October 17 at 6:00 p.m. at the Burlington Branch, Knox County Public Library – 4617 Asheville Highway.


Knox Heritage, as the historic preservation education and advocacy organization for our area, would like to assist with encouraging dialogue and action planning for preserving and improving neighborhoods in East Knoxville.


The meeting will focus on the Burlington Commercial District National Register nomination, gathering information and stories on the people and businesses in Burlington from 1915 until 1970, and collecting oral histories and photos from the area. Current and former business owners and residents are encouraged to attend.
