At the turn of the century, a botanist by the name of Nathan Hale bought 300 acres on Washington Pike in North Hills and developed an amazing Peach Orchard, so much so a peach was named the Hale Peach. Mr. Hale built his home in the middle of this orchard and named it “Cottonwood”. This property went up for sale in the mid-1920s and a young family by the name of Lay took ownership. Many of the original Knoxvillians trusted the Lays for all their meat and meatpacking needs. Unfortunately, after the Lay family moved the house fell in disrepair, as well as the orchards. Many driving this road expected the house to be torn down and a new modern house built in its place. Fortunately, in 2006 the house was sold and the new owners saw the original vision of Nathan Hale and began to bring Cottonwood back to its original glory with many improvements. Today this house showcases old and new architecture and is a true Knoxville gem!
