Preservation Network – March 2023
Join Knox Heritage & Local Lore for a Walking Tour of Maplehurst Park!
Maplehurst Park was originally a large estate (Maplehurst) owned by prominent businessman Edward J Sanford (1831 – 1902). Sanford was a local manufacturing magnate and financier. He led companies including Sanford, Chamberlain, and Albers; druggists; Mechanics’ National Bank; Knoxville Woolen Mills; and the Coal Creek Mining and Manufacturing Company. Maplehurst Park was developed during the early twentieth century as one of the last downtown neighborhoods in Knoxville. By 1909, lots begin to be divided and sold for development with the peak of development happening during the 1920s.
We will meet at the corner of W. Hill Avenue & Maplehurst Court.
