Join Knox Heritage for the Dedication of the Kristopher Kendrick Parlor - June 2

Knox Heritage is pleased to honor one of the most passionate and prolific preservationists in Knoxville history by dedicating Historic Westwood’s Fresco Parlor in memory of Kristopher Kendrick.

Celebrate His Work

Kristopher made an indelible mark on Knoxville’s historic architecture and his legacy will live on for generations in each building he rescued and restored with his signature flair. He emerged as a visionary who helped spark the renaissance of downtown that we are enjoying today.  The vision also extended to the historic neighborhoods that benefited from his ability to see diamonds in the rough.  We are all the beneficiaries of his passion and work on behalf of historic preservation. As part of the event, guests will enjoy a special screening of Conceptions, Visions, Dreams: The Kristopher Kendrick Story.
