South Knoxville is an area of Knoxville located just south of the Tennessee River. Although a small subsection of the city, Knoxville owes much of its current success to this little community that was once the home of a bustling marble and lumber industry. As the origin of such landmarks as Ijams Nature Center, Fort Dickerson, Fort Higley, Fort Stanley, and the Gov. John Sevier Home, South Knoxville also now is host to a thriving arts and trade district.
