Nestled in North Knoxville near Old North Knox and Fourth & Gill, North Hills is a hidden gem of a historic neighborhood. It is often referred to by locals as “where my grandparents lived when I was a child.” It is known for the majestic trees, eclectic architecture, rolling hills, and beautiful landscaping.
North Hills is defined by its main boulevards: North Hills, Fountain Park, and North Park, which have large, dogwood-lined medians.
The greater North Hills area is bordered by Cecil Avenue to the south, Whittle Springs Road to the west, Washington Pike to the north and Prosser Road to the east. This area includes the Plantation Hills subdivision known for its streets that are named after Civil War battlefields.
North Hills is alive with a great sense of community. Many neighbors are often found mingling with each other while walking their dogs or pushing a child in a stroller, sometimes maneuvering both! The North Hills Garden Club, which was formed in 1935, is still an active and integral part of the neighborhood. You can always find someone tending to their beautiful yards when the weather allows. Neighbors are always ready to thin out some of their well-established plants to share with others. An active Neighborhood Watch program uses the area’s Yahoo Group listserv (see ‘Contact’ section) for special alerts.
In May 2008, the Tennessee state review board approved the nomination of the North Hills to National Register of Historic Places. The board recognized the importance of this neighborhood’ s history and will send its recommendation on to the Keeper of the National Register in Washington, DC.
Dated August 29, 2008, over 150 residents in North Hills received a letter from E. Patrick McIntyre, Jr, Executive Director of the State Historic Preservation Officer, announcing that their home is “located within the boundaries of the North Hills Historic District, has, upon the nomination of this office, been placed in the National and Tennessee Registers of Historic Places by the National Park Service of the United States Department of the Interior on July 25, 2008.”
On behalf of the residents of North Hills, a very special thanks goes to Knox Heritage for their diligent work in making this wonderful distinction possible.
March 2010: North Hills Garden Club received special recognition for 75 years of outstanding service to the North Hills area.
North Hills has an active Neighborhood Watch program that utilizes the area Yahoo group to notify residents of any crime in the area.
North Hills is proud to be a winner of the Keep Knoxville Beautiful Orchid Award in 2002.
We found this YouTube video which we think residents and visitors will enjoy. It shows some beautiful views of TN-111 and the surrounding area. It’s over six minutes long but well worth it in our opinion.
