About Our Neighborhood
Nestled just west of downtown Knoxville and the University of Tennessee, along the banks of the Tennessee River to the south and the historic Kingston Pike (KP) to the north, lies one of Knoxville's oldest premiere residential sections. Against the odds, KP/Sequoyah Hills has retained this status for more than 75 years. During that time, it has evolved from scattered mansions along Kingston Pike and Logan Road (now Scenic Drive) and large tracts of farmland to become a well-loved and diversified, close-in suburban dwelling place for newcomers and legacies as well.

What is now Sequoyah Hills began as several different developments, with the whole finally taking the current name of the great Indian Chief Sequoyah who invented the Cherokee alphabet. Talahi, Shawnee Woods, and Cherokee Hills additions, along with others, reflect this past and add to the texture of the neighborhood.

KP/Sequoyah Hills provides a comforting background of green vistas secured by mature trees, of carillon bells from Sequoyah Presbyterian Church, the sound of water from the fountains, broadened intersections and quaint streetlights. Strollers, runners, bikers, children, and pets come by to add the sparks of life to an evening on the porch. Spontaneous yard visits by a neighbor who walks by lighten the day. Christmas caroling and tree lighting, the Children's Easter Parade and Egg Hunt in Talahi's Papoose Park and Labor Day activities at the Polo Field offer a chance for renewing acquaintances and making new friends. Little League ball games and children's play grounds tie generations together. Volunteers to Sequoyah Hills/Kingston Pike Association, Sequoyah Hills Historic Preservation, Little League coaches, Neighborhood Watch and others work diligently to preserve and improve the neighborhood.

The distant drum beats of the first human inhabitants gave way to the hoof beats of horses and wagons along the old Indian trail that became Kingston Pike and, soon to follow, to the heart beats of residents and visitors. And the beat goes on ...echoing the past and welcoming the future.
