What is Knox Heritage?

Knox Heritage works to preserve the structures and places with historic or cultural significance in Knox County, Tennessee. Established in 1974 as a non-profit educational corporation, Knox Heritage is chartered by the state of Tennessee and governed by a board of directors representing all areas of our community. Membership in the organization is by annual dues, which are tax deductible, and is open to all individuals, businesses, and organizations recognizing the value of historic preservation. Knox Heritage is the only staffed organization in the region that works every day to protect our treasured structures and places. Without Knox Heritage, many of our important buildings, along with the history and charm of the area, would have been demolished.
