We're Here for the Architecture

Just for Fun Outdoor Around Town

Downtown Knoxville is filled with architectural wonders.


Within the walkable 0.67 square mile Downtown district, there are more than two dozen listings on the National Register of Historic Places, including the entire Gay Street Commercial Historic District and the Market Square Historic District. Over in the Old City, Knoxville's most concentrated collection of restored Victorian buildings pridefully take you back in time.


With buildings spanning more than four centuries, you'll find a mix of old and new. Share a pic of your favorite building or architectural detail here.


Take a walk, look up, and enjoy the view.
