About Our Neighborhood
Old Sevier Community is on the south side of the Tennessee River directly across from downtown Knoxville. Three bridges link our neighborhood with downtown and Interstates 40 and 75. Our neighborhood is a little over an hour from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Just to the west and across the river is the Unviersity of Tennessee, and Island Home Airport, Ijams Nature Center, and the Tennessee School for the Deaf are about a mile to the east.
Two ridges, three valleys, and the old flood plain of the river comprise our neighborhood. It is bounded on the north by the river, on the east and south by James White Parkway, and on the west by Chapman Highway and Old Martin Mill Pike East.
In spite of our metropolitan location, the neighborhood has the feel of a small town. There are many trees and several wooded areas. Many residents have lived in the neighborhood all their lives. Houses are mostly owner-occupied and often have front porches. Homeowners enjoy remodeling their houses and working in their yards. A number of residents work in the neighborhood.
The neighborhood has 68 business, 20 apartment buildings and complexes, two of which are large and occupied by UT students, four churches, an elementary school, two day-cares, and a fire hall. It is diverse in every way - racially, economically, educationally, and as to age.
