2023 East Tennessee Preservation Conference
Modernism in East Tennessee
The East Tennessee Preservation Conference is held annually as a regional resource for civic leaders; history enthusiasts; and professionals in the fields of architecture, real estate, property development, and academia to provide education about East Tennessee’s historic sites and how we can all work together to preserve our shared history. This year’s theme, “Modernism in Knoxville,” will explore the history of Mid-Century Modernist design in our area, its importance in the history of architecture, and why these sites should be preserved. Session topics include: TVA architecture, the alphabet housing in Oak Ridge, and a retrospective look at the early residential work of well-known Knoxville architect, Bruce McCarty.
