Knoxville is located in a placid, green valley within sight of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The city is surrounded by seven of the "Great Lakes of the South" created by the Tennessee Valley Authority, whose headquarters are located in Knoxville.
Knoxville, which had a 1995 Metropolitan Statistical Area population of 640,700, is best known for hosting the 1982 World's Fair. The city was officially founded on October 3, 1791, and named in honor of General Henry Knox, Secretary of War in President George Washington's cabinet.
Knoxville is surrounded by the world famous U.S. Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory and three National Parks. The shimmering Great Lakes of the South provide accessible sports and recreational opportunities. Due to Knoxville's convenient location, you can easily spend a day in the mountains or raft a whitewater river and still enjoy an evening on the town.
